Description:

Filters a list, returning only one instance of any repeated value. Items are returned in the oder of first appearance. Additionally, you can submit a list of values to be ignored—for example spaces, dashes and other characters that may have been entered into a field in lieu of a proper value. Such items will be ignored only is the *whole line* of the list matches the *whole* of one of the 'ignore-items'
