Replicate data base on single cell

Hello All.

I have a dataset with eleven columns. The last column/cell contains data (eg. '1, 2, 3') that needs to be (1) separated and (2) used to replicate the previous data.

Columns 1-10 will need to be replicated with each new row based on the 'separated' last cell. So if the last cell has two+ variables then the variable will be separated and the other data replicated.

So you go from:
A         B
xxx      1, 2, 3


To:
A         B
xxx      1
xxx      2
xxx      3

See dataset attached.

Thanks,

Fernando

Hi, model_un.

Please see attached (which does all entries including the last one). The code is...
Option Explicit

Sub Split_Comma()
Dim i As Long
Dim j As Long
Dim k As Long
Dim xLast_Row As Long
Dim xCell As Range
Dim xArray  As Variant
Dim xOld As Worksheet
Dim xNew As Worksheet
        
Set xOld = ThisWorkbook.Sheets("Sheet1")

xLast_Row = xOld.[A1].SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row
If xLast_Row < 2 Then
    MsgBox ("No data found - run cancelled.")
    Exit Sub
End If

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
        
    Set xNew = Sheets.Add
    
    For i = 1 To xLast_Row
        xArray = Split(xOld.Cells(i, 11), ",")
        If UBound(xArray) > -1 Then
            For j = 0 To UBound(xArray)
                k = k + 1
                xOld.Rows(i).Copy Destination:=xNew.Range("A" & k)
                xNew.Cells(k, 11) = xArray(j)
            Next
        Else
            k = k + 1
            xOld.Rows(i).Copy Destination:=xNew.Range("A" & k)
        End If
    Next

Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Thanks The_Barman.

Question... when I ran your macro again using the test data... I notice that it is not returning the last line (the only one with a single entry).

Comments?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

try this. Make sure macroes are enabled and run the button in Sheet1 and it will create a brand new sheet with date labled.

the last line is my bad needed to add one to output...

Sub Run_Macro()

Dim Arr, Arr2
Dim ArrOut()

Z = 0
Arr = Sheets("Sheet1").UsedRange.Value
For x = 2 To UBound(Arr)
Arr2 = Split(Arr(x, 11), ",")
    For y = 0 To UBound(Arr2)
        Z = Z + 1
        ReDim Preserve ArrOut(1 To 11, 1 To Z)
        For i = 1 To 10
            ArrOut(i, Z) = Arr(x, i)
        Next i
        ArrOut(11, Z) = Arr2(y)
    Next y
Next x

Sheets("sheet2").Range("A2:K" & UBound(ArrOut, 2) + 1).Value = Application.Transpose(ArrOut)

End Sub

Brian, over large data sets you will find that the cell level changes slow the whole code down considerably... I just made the schoolboy error of my output range being one row too small. (doh!)

The_Barman,

Thanks, I'm very aware of... both of those points!

Unless a macro has a significant time-impact on the user, I tend to lean to the side of simplicity over speed. I'm very reluctant to give a user a solution which is beyond their capability to support.

Regards,
Brian.

And I have seen that there is a date error in the code.. good old VBA dates... attached is code which corrects the issue...

Sub Run_Macro()

Dim Arr, Arr2
Dim ArrOut()

Z = 0
Arr = Sheets("Sheet1").UsedRange.Value
For x = 2 To UBound(Arr)
Arr2 = Split(Arr(x, 11), ",")
    For y = 0 To UBound(Arr2)
        Z = Z + 1
        ReDim Preserve ArrOut(1 To 11, 1 To Z)
        For i = 1 To 9
            ArrOut(i, Z) = Arr(x, i)
        Next i
        ArrOut(10, Z) = Format(Arr(x, 10), "dd-mmm-yyyy")
        ArrOut(11, Z) = Arr2(y)
    Next y
Next x

Sheets("sheet2").Range("A2:K" & UBound(ArrOut, 2) + 1).Value = Application.Transpose(ArrOut)

End Sub

Thank you all.

In the end GowFlow's solution worked without freezing my system.

Thanks!
