How to alert on two of the same entries within a file?

Hi all,

 

I've been pondering this one for a while.

 

We have a situation where we need to scan a file for any duplicate entries, for instance:

 

A file exists with lets say 6 columns, in the 6th column (from top to bottom) are numbers going from 1 to 300.

 

I'd like to get Nimsoft to scan this column and alert if it finds two entries for any of the same number.  I'd definitely use Logmon for the scan and a variable to scan the column, but I'm not sure on how to get it to alert on finding two of the same numbers?

 

Any help or advice would be great

 

Thanks in advance!
