Excel/combining duplicates from one column keeping all other data


QUESTION: Excel 2003 spreadsheet imported from access query.
Columns from A to AE.
Rows display data such as case number and procedure group
Problem--Some rows have duplicate listing of case numbers due to more than one procedure group.
Desired output--Combine the procedure group on all duplicated rows and return all columns A to AE with the original data.
Worksheet Looks like--there are calculated fields hidden in sample
12-1927  05/17/2012 Diagnostic1 time time time group out to AE
12-1927  05/17/2012 PTCA       time time time group out to AE

12-1927 05/17/2012 Diagnostic1/PTCA time time time group out to AE

I was able to get a combine module but it only returned the first two columns. I need all of it.

ANSWER: The attached picture is too big, can you crop it down to just A1:AE15 and upload again.

Still can't read it.   You can send me a file using the link below.  Make sure the file you send has a complete set of mock data, then a complete set of RESULTS on another sheet showing how all that mock data should be reduced.  Your mock data should have all the variations and solutions you encounter in your data, so be thorough.
