What to do for duplication's in a drop down list?

If you have duplicate items in a drop down list, it is advisable to go through the system to change all the data to the same drop down selection before you delete the duplicate (see here). 

 

For example, if you have 'Mr' twice on the drop down list. You will need to go through all the user's data and on all occurrences of the title 'Mr', you will have to make them the same one, so that you may delete the other.

 

If you delete the duplicate before undertaking the above step, the user's that have selected the deleted 'Mr', will have empty data.
