If your desire is to simply transpose a row to columns (or vice versa), have you tried just recording a macro while performing this task? It will give you a base to start for modifications, if needed.

Yes, i tried the idea .

But the problem is that some time one of the fields is missing. For example sometimes there will be no phone number. And hence the recorded macro not providing exact result.

So i was asked for macro  which should be able to recognize the field title and paste information if available.

The simplest approach would be first to insert a phone number row in the sections where it is missing and then to do the cell copy with transpose.

If there are more (than phone numbers) possible missing data, then you will need to specify all the possible missing data names.

a macro can do this, but you haven't supplied enough detail for a macro that would likely solve your problem completely.

Per your prior comment, if the phone number is not the only possible missing row data, then what are the mappings?  It looks like the row header might be stripped of its trailing colon character (:) and possibly be matched with the column headers, but that is an assumption on my part.  This kind of detailed problem statement is what the experts need.
