I want to validate data table row is unique or not.i finish the validation but the problem is if any empty values in fields throw error message.
How to validate only values.if empty value is occur just ignore it.

What I have tried:

var duplicates1 = dtPart.AsEnumerable().GroupBy(r => r[7]).Where(gr => gr.Count() > 1).ToList();
duplicates1 = dtPart.AsEnumerable().GroupBy(r => r[7]).Where(gr => gr.Count() > 1).ToList();

This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind.
You need to explain what is in your DT that is giving your problems - we can't look from here!

Does the data type of r[7] field is numeric or string?

Check this:

var duplicates1 = dtPart.AsEnumerable()
     .Where(r => r[7]!=null)
     .GroupBy(r => r[7])
     .Where(gr => gr.Count() > 1)

var duplicates1 = dtPart.AsEnumerable()
     .Where(r => r.Field<data_type>("FieldName")!=null)
     .GroupBy(r => r.Field<data_type>("FieldName"))
     .Where(gr => gr.Count() > 1)
