you can group by Name field.

then just create a formula to output the ID which will have the highest value.


maximum(ID, Name)

1. you need to go to format editor for that formula and check the option 'Suppress If Duplicated' (otherwise you will have redundant data on report)

2. suppress the blank section if you want.
