I would like to transpose several rows of data into columns of data so that I can use a pivo table on it.  I would like to use a formula so if I change something in the row areas, the transposed area also changes.  I have attached  a small file with some data in the rows.

Thanks, Eric

Try this formula in A11

=OFFSET($B$4,COLUMNS($B$4:B4)-1,ROWS($B$4:B4)-1)

copy across and down to C20

Barry,

It works, one question though, how come the column needs to be so wide so that the ##### don't show?

Thanks for the quick response,

Eric

I think that just happens when you copy the formula from here - it can have some odd effects - it might be work deleting the cell completely and entering the formula manually.....
