Hi, In the attached Excel workbook, once these are imported into Acces, please offer how I may transform 'Original' table into 'New.'

Please note the following main changes:

1. Values in Column D are separated into their own individual rows
2. The value in Column I then needs to be filled into each of the new individual rows.

This is only a sample. Column D may have varying values, with up to 100's of values in column I that need to be populated into the newly created rows from Olumn D.

Thank you

I can do this by creating an excel macro. Will that be ok with you?

At this time - let me work on other options before you take your time to create a macro. Please wait.

I'm with sstampf...

If there is a way to do this in Excel, then go for it.

In Access this will be extremely complex...
