Delete duplicates from a StringList Collection

Question asked by geir.olsen on Nov 19, 2015

I have a Stringlist Collection that I have populated with every attribute value for all the components in the design in the format:

 

objAttrStringList.Append(".ATT_COM " & RefDesVal & " " & chr(34) & objAttribute.Name & chr(34) & " " & chr(34) & objAttribute.Value & chr(34))

 

a typical string looks like this:

 

.ATT_COM R334 "PKG_TYPE" "0402"

 

However I have duplicates in the stringlist collection.

 

Do anyone have any suggestions for sorting and removing duplicates.

 

Keep in mind that for a large design, it could potential be a lot of strings. In the one I'm working on right now there are about 25000....

 

Best Regards
