MySQL - Delete duplicates in a table






To remove duplicates in a table set up as follows:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS TabTest (   
           prim_key integer(4) NOT NULL auto_increment,
           x integer,
           y integer,
           z integer,
           Constraint pk_Tab_test PRIMARY KEY  (rpim_key)    
); 


We should begin by setting the fields related to duplicate (in our case the fields x and y):



To remove duplicate fields in x and y run the command:
ALTER IGNORE TABLE  TabTest ADD UNIQUE INDEX(x,y);
