There are duplicate records in the table, which I am able to find by
     select    <col1>
             , count(*)
from <table>
group by  <col1>
having count(*) > 1;

Is there any way to update the table expect one row from duplicate series.

I have tried Rownum which does not seems working.

Col1   col2   col3
1	xx
2       yy
1       xx
1       yy
3       abc

I am able to idetify the records as
1    xx
1    xx
1    yy

on the basis of col1

now i want to make a update as
Col1   col2   col3
1    xx
1    xx	      Dupliacte col1
1    yy       Dupliacte Col1

Can anyone help what would be the Update statement

There are many and many threads on duplicates.
Some are about deleting duplicates, just change delete to update.
