Add a fourth MSHFlexGrid (MSHFlexGrid4)  to your form and two Command Buttons.

Also add a reference to the Microsoft Excel Object Library

Command 1 will load MSHFlexGrid4 with the values you want

Command 2 will transfer them to Excel

Dim Doors As New Collection
Dim Door_Entry As String
Dim Order_Group() As String
Dim P_Carrier() As String
Dim Carrier() As String

Private Sub Form_Load()


With MSHFlexGrid1
   .FixedCols = 0
   .Cols = 2
   .Rows = 1
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test1", 1
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test2", 2
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test3", 3
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test4", 4
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test5", 5
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test6", 6
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test7", 7
   .FixedRows = 1
   .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Door"
   .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Order Group"
End With

With MSHFlexGrid2
   .FixedCols = 0
   .Cols = 2
   .Rows = 1
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test8", 1
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test9", 2
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test10", 3
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test11", 4
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test12", 5
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test13", 6
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test14", 7
   .FixedRows = 1
   .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Door"
   .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "P Carrier"
End With

With MSHFlexGrid3
   .FixedCols = 0
   .Cols = 2
   .Rows = 1
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test15", 1
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test16", 2
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test17", 3
   .AddItem "A" & vbTab & "test18", 4
   .AddItem "B" & vbTab & "test19", 5
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test20", 6
   .AddItem "C" & vbTab & "test21", 7
   .FixedRows = 1
   .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Door"
   .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Carrier"
End With

   .Cols = 4
   .FixedRows = 1
   .TextMatrix(0, 0) = "Door"
   .TextMatrix(0, 1) = "Order Group"
   .TextMatrix(0, 2) = "P Carrier"
   .TextMatrix(0, 3) = "Carrier"
End With

End Sub
