lccFindDuplicates is a Windows program to help find duplicate records, using specific columns, but, returning the entire records.

Others LCC tools suggested for this type of need:

Records (file) can be pre-sorted, or sorted within the program.

For example, you could compare the Birthdate and Name of a person, and return all records that have the same Birthdate/LastName as another record.
