I have a rather large spreadsheet of data that I need to export as a CSV file so I can import into a database.  My issue is the data is populated horizontally based on the key field (employee ID).  What I would like to do it take the data and move it vertically so the CSV file will be in the format I need.  Copy and paste special - transpose will work, however this spreadsheet is huge and will take a lot of time to transpose.  I also thought about using MS Query and or Crystal Reports to get my data in the correct format.  Any idea's how I could accomplish this task?  Possibly with an option I outlined above or some programming or formula?  I have included a small screen shot of what the layout currently is and what I am looking to achieve.  Thank you.
