Go to define fields, choose/highlight the name field then click on options. You'll see a window with tab sections, click on validation, then click unique to make it active. Do the same for your street address field.

Now if anyone enters duplicate data in either field an alert box will come up indicating that it is a duplicate and asking whether to allow it.

If you go back to the validation window you'll see an option called strict. If strict is active then users will not be given the option to allow overrides.

Hope this helps
