Macro To Transpose Data

Posted on 2011-02-24
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have attached a sample file of the results I want.  Original Data is on Sheet 1 - Transposed Data is on Sheet 2.

What I am looking for is a macro that will find all rows of the same LOT# and transpose the data to one row. Once the data is transposed for that lot it should delete the remaining rows and move the next LOT#.

There are over 200,000 rows on my original sheet, so this is just a sample.  Also, the number of rows per LOT can vary.  Some only have 2 rows, some 3, and some 5.

Here is one approach:
Sub Macro1()

Dim vIn, oDic As Object, vOut(), i As Long, j As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

vIn = Sheet1.Range("A1").CurrentRegion.Value
ReDim vOut(1 To UBound(vIn, 1), 1 To 5)
Set oDic = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

With oDic
    For i = 1 To UBound(vIn, 1)
        If Not .Exists(vIn(i, 1)) Then
            j = j + 1
            vOut(j, 1) = vIn(i, 1)
            vOut(j, 2) = vIn(i, 2)
            vOut(j, 3) = vIn(i, 3)
            vOut(j, 4) = vIn(i, 4)
            vOut(j, 5) = vIn(i, 5)
            .Add vIn(i, 1), j
        ElseIf .Exists(vIn(i, 1)) Then
            vOut(.Item(vIn(i, 1)), 5) = vOut(.Item(vIn(i, 1)), 5) & "," & vIn(i, 5)
        End If
    Next i
End With

With Sheet2
    .Range("A1").Resize(j, 5) = vOut
    .Columns("E:E").TextToColumns Destination:=.Range("E1"), DataType:=xlDelimited, Comma:=True
End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

you can use this code, pasted in the vba page of sheet 1
Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim lot As String
Dim id As String
Dim created As String
Dim transit As String
Dim equipment As String

    If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A:A")) Is Nothing Then
        Cancel = True
        lot = Range("A" & Target.Row)
        For Each Row In UsedRange.Rows
            If Row.Cells(1).Text = lot Then
                '-- process data
                id = Range("B" & Row.Row)
                created = Range("C" & Row.Row)
                transit = Range("D" & Row.Row)
                equipment = Range("E" & Row.Row)
                '-- find existing information
                Set result = Worksheets("sheet2").UsedRange.Find(lot, LookIn:=xlValues)
                If result Is Nothing Then
                    '-- add new entry
                    pos = Worksheets("sheet2").UsedRange.Rows.Count + 1
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Range("A" & pos) = lot
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Range("B" & pos) = id
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Range("C" & pos) = created
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Range("D" & pos) = transit
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Range("E" & pos) = equipment
                    '-- append to existing entry
                    pos = result.Row
                    '-- find an empty cell
                    col = 5
                    While Worksheets("sheet2").Rows(pos).Cells(col) <> ""
                        col = col + 1
                    '-- paste data
                    Worksheets("sheet2").Cells(pos, col) = equipment
                End If
                '-- remove original data
            End If
        Next Row
    End If

End Sub

Thank you all for your suggestions.  

StephenJR, your code worked for 1/2 of the spreadsheet, but for some reason stopped in the middle of the sheet.  I verified there were no empty rows, and even tried sorting by LOT#.

Sid, your code was working but kept looping back.  I ended up having to CTRL - Break to get it to stop running after a few minutes.  I even added the "Application.ScreenUpdating=False" at the beginning and set it back to true and tried again with no luck.

Probably because you had a blank row.

John15-16: Ah Ok... Try this

Add this line

ExitLoop = False


Do While ExitLoop = False

and try again.
