How can i parse this data using VBA in excel? PART 2!

The file shows 5 levels of product information product type, company, color, sub classification and product. Also imagine 100's of product types and 100's of months of data. It all follows the same basic layout throughout.

Beside the product's are monthly sales dollars and units sold. I'd like a flat list of this data for pivot use.

Side note - the file i'm working with has groupings that collapse this data, is there possibly a non vba way of getting a flat list? food for thought

Attached is a file and the code here shows how to get this task done properly with 3 levels of data. (Thanks nutsch)
Private Sub CleanUpAgain()
Dim lastRow As Long, i As Long 'define variables
application.ScreenUpdating = False 'disable ScreenUpdating to avoid screen flashes

lastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row 'get last row

With range("A6:B" & lastRow)
    .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C"
    .Value = .Value
End With

Rows("5:6").Delete

Cells(4, 1) = "TYPE"
Cells(4, 2) = "COMPANY"
Cells(4, 3) = "PRODUCT"

With Cells(4, 1).CurrentRegion
    .AutoFilter Field:=3, Criteria1:="="
    .Offset(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    .AutoFilter
End With

For i = 4 To Cells(4, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    Cells(3, i) = Left(Cells(4, i), Len(Cells(4, i)) - InStr(StrReverse(Cells(4, i)), " "))
    Cells(4, i) = Trim(Right(Cells(4, i), InStr(StrReverse(Cells(4, i)), " ")))
Next i

application.ScreenUpdating = True 'reenable ScreenUpdating
End Sub

Here is a more flexible update for you

Private Sub CleanUpAgain()
Dim lastRow As Long, i As Long, lastCol As Long 'define variables
Application.ScreenUpdating = False 'disable ScreenUpdating to avoid screen flashes


lastCol = 5 'E is the 5th column
lastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, lastCol).End(xlUp).Row 'get last row

With Range(Cells(6, 1), Cells(lastRow, lastCol - 1))
    .SpecialCells(xlCellTypeBlanks).FormulaR1C1 = "=R[-1]C"
    .Value = .Value
End With

Rows("5:" & 5 + lastCol - 1).Delete

Cells(4, 1) = "TYPE"
Cells(4, 2) = "COMPANY"
Cells(4, 3) = "COLOR"
Cells(4, 4) = "SUBCLASS"
Cells(4, 5) = "PRODUCT"

With Cells(lastCol + 1, 1).CurrentRegion
    .AutoFilter Field:=lastCol, Criteria1:="="
    .Offset(1).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeVisible).EntireRow.Delete
    .AutoFilter
End With

For i = lastCol + 1 To Cells(4, Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    Cells(3, i) = Left(Cells(4, i), Len(Cells(4, i)) - InStr(StrReverse(Cells(4, i)), " "))
    Cells(4, i) = Trim(Right(Cells(4, i), InStr(StrReverse(Cells(4, i)), " ")))
Next i

Application.ScreenUpdating = True 'reenable ScreenUpdating
End Sub
