Inactivate Duplicate Row Values
Author: Christophe Lambert, and Bryce Christensen Golden Helix Inc.
This script scans a selected column in a spreadsheet and inactivates rows based on user prompts by either inactivating all copies of the duplicate values or keeping the first occurrence and inactivating all subsequent duplicates. Row values need to match exactly, including case, to be considered duplicates.
Recommended Directory Location
Save the script to the following directory:
*..\Application Data\Golden Helix SVS\UserScripts\Spreadsheet\Column
Note: The Application Data folder is a hidden folder on many operating systems and its location varies between operating systems. The easiest way to locate this directory on your computer is to open SVS and go to Tools >Open Folder > UserScripts Folder. If saved to the proper folder, this script will be accessible from the Spreadsheet Column menu.

What is Python?
Python is a clear and powerful object-oriented programming language, comparable to Perl, Ruby, Scheme, or Java. Integrating Python into SVS provides full programmatic access to many of the software's features enabling the augmentation of existing tools, creating entirely new ones, automation of work flows, integration with other programs and more.
