transpose range of cells in excel 2007

Dear experts
I know how to trasnpose a column in a row and vice versa, what I want to do in this case, without using vb script if possible is to take a column exported from my property database which simply has a gap (empty cell) between each record and move that as a whole chunk across as a row. This is because the mail merge merge program in Word (2007) only seems to import the field headers as a row, unless someone can tell me how to mail merge from that layout instead it would acheive the same thing.
Fro example, I have 3 records all on column A, the first 2 contain 4 rows and the last one is 5 rows, how would I get this trasnposed into 3 columns using the empty cell between each reacord as a delimiter, or I could insert a delimiter character in between each record such as a tab or comma if that would make it easier.
Your help is much appreciated.

I am not sure if it could be done without using VB, but with a macro it is fairly easy, assuming that you start with an empty worksheet and copy the records to column A
Sub process()

    target_row = 1
    target_col = 3
    For Row = 1 To UsedRange.Rows.Count

        If Range("A" & Row) = "" Then
            '-- empty cell = delimiter, move to new column
            target_row = 1
            target_col = target_col + 1
        Else
            target_row = target_row + 1
            Cells(target_row, target_col) = Range("A" & Row)
        End If

    Next Row

End Sub
