Transpose formula

I am sure this must be simple but I cant figure out how you do it.
I want to transpose a range of cells from a row to a column.
I don’t want to switch the data just the cells.

In the example, row 1 has the values in it and in column A, cell A3 downwards has the equation I want to use, for example A3 = A1,  A4 = B1 and A5 = C1 etc
If I try to pull down the cells in column A it changes the row number rather than the column number.
How do I do this to make it change the column number when I drag it down?

Try this formula in A3 copied down

=INDEX($1:$1,ROWS(A$3:A3))

=OFFSET($A$1,0,ROW()-3,1,1)

To move across a column when moving down a row:

1) Copy and paste across to the next column
2) Cut and paste down to the next row
3) Copy and paste back to the previous column
4) Delete formula from stage 2

This works with a single cell or a block.

Thanks

Likewise if you wanted to move down a row without changing the column:

1) Copy and paste down to next row
2) Cut and paste across to next column
3) Copy and paste back up a row
4) Delete formula from stage 2

Select A3:A9

Enter =Transpose(A1:G1)

Press Ctrl + Shift + Enter

This is an Array Formula so you must press Ctrl + Shift + Enter

I think I must have got my steps wrong, I seem to end up with a copy of the original formula.

Must try harder. Stay behind and write lines!
