On a new sheet enter this formula in A1

=INDEX(Sheet1!$A:$G,IF(ROW()=1,1,(ROW()-2)*5+2+INT((COLUMN()-1)/7)),MOD(COLUMN()-1,7)+1)

and copy it across to column AI and down as far as needed.

I attached a revised sample to make it more clear.

Disregard previous email,  It does work!  Thank you very much for the answer.  After copying down 1200 rows cols A:AL   it pulls the right data.
