Hi, I need a macro within Excel that will read in an entire workbook of data and transpose it to be vertical within the "A" column.

For example:

Current spreadsheet
apple  pear  fruit
apple  pear  fruit
....

I need it to be formatted
apple
pear
fruit
apple
pear
fruit
...

The spreadsheet is 3 columns by 1,973 rows but if it could be dynamic or ask how many columns and how many rows to transpose that would be terrifc.  Thank you

This is assuming that you have a sheet in your workbook named "Sheet2" where your results will be posted to.

Sub Translate()

    Dim lngRow As Long
    Dim rngRow As Range
    Dim rngCol As Range

    Set rngRow = Range("A1")
    Set rngCol = Range("A1")
   
    lngRow = 1
   
    Do While rngRow.Value <> ""
       
        Do While rngCol.Value <> ""
            Sheet2.Cells(lngRow, 1) = rngCol.Value
           
            Set rngCol = rngCol.Offset(0, 1)
            lngRow = lngRow + 1
        Loop
       
        Set rngRow = rngRow.Offset(1, 0)
        Set rngCol = rngRow
    Loop
   
End Sub

Hi EliasSportsBureau-

Thanks for your help.  The values within my spreadsheet are unique so it appears to be duplicating the B & C columns it reads in.

For example,

A         B        C- column headers
apple  pear  cherry
fig      twig   tree
pig     dog    cat


Should be

apple
pear
cherry
fig
twig
tree
pig
dog
cat

It should baiscally just read in the rows for a, b and c and shift the data into column a.  Can you still help me with it please?  Thanks again

I'm not exactly sure what you mean.  I put the data on "Sheet1" and then ran the macro and the data appeared the way you described it above in "Sheet2" all in Column A.

Hope this helps

Hi EliasSportsBurea- your right, it does work.  I didn't have a "Sheet1" so I put my data on it and had it transfer over to Sheet2.  I did have to do a tweak for "Sheet2.Cells(lngRow, 1) = rngCol.Value", I made it "Sheet1.Cells(lngRow, 1) = rngCol.Value" and it ran perfectly.  Thanks again for all of your help.
