Hi,

I have 5 rows, each contains 25 numbers (125) numbers in total.  Which is the easiest and fastest way to grab this 5 x 25 numbers and paste them elsewhere as one row of 125 numbers?

Thank you

You could save the file as a .csv file, then open it with Notepad... it would give you all 5 of your rows separated by a ','.  Just delete the 4 commas in the file, save it, then open it back up w/ Excel.

There are also numerous ways you could automate this process with PowerShell... not sure how comfortable you are with scripting, but I could create a sample script that would do this if you're comfortable running scripts.  What operating system are you using?

Here's a macro you can use. It assumes the data is in rows 1 to 5 and it puts the data in row 6.

Sub CombineRows()
Dim intSel As Integer
Dim intPaste As Integer

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

intPaste = 1
' Assumes the data is in rows 1 to 5
For intSel = 1 To 5
    Range("A" & intSel & ":" & "Y" & intSel).Select
    Selection.Copy
    ' Puts the result in row 6
    Cells(6, intPaste).Select
    ActiveSheet.Paste
    intPaste = intPaste + 25
Next

Application.CutCopyMode = False
Application.ScreenUpdating = True

Open in new window

ahh, sorry, misunderstood... not really an Excel expert, so apologies for wasting time here.... that being said, it looks like you can just concatenate your rows with '&':

=A1&B1&C1&D1&E1

That's making the assumption that when you say you have 25 numbers per row, that they are 25 numbers in a single column.... if they are 5 rows x 25 columns, then this would take longer to type in for 125 cells.

You can also try this one-liner. C10 is where the table starts. A7 is where the results starts (this should remain in column A. If you want to change it some modification is required).

Sub tab2row()
Range("A7").Resize(, 25).Formula = "=index(" & Range("C10").Resize(5, 5).Address & ",(COLUMN()-1)/5+1,MOD(COLUMN()-1,5)+1)"
End Sub
