Hello Experts

I'm looking for a script that will convert a spreadsheet from 2 rows per item to 1 row per item.

In order to preserve the flow of the data, I would like to insert a new column after each column from C to Y, rather than moving all the data in the 2nd row as a single block.

Contents of fields are mix of data and formulas.  Number of rows is 5000.

Thanks!

With the requirement of keeping the formula, it makes it hard to do batch processing. You can try the attached macro, but I expect it to be slow.

Sub Macro6()
Dim lLastRow As Long, lRowLoop As Long, lColLoop As Long

'turn off updates to speed up code execution
With Application
    .ScreenUpdating = False
    .EnableEvents = False
    .Calculation = xlCalculationManual
    .DisplayAlerts = False
End With

lLastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

For lColLoop = 25 To 4 Step -1
    Columns(lColLoop).Insert
Next lColLoop

For lRowLoop = lLastRow To 4 Step -2
    For lColLoop = 3 To 48 Step 2
        Cells(lRowLoop, lColLoop).Cut Cells(lRowLoop - 1, lColLoop + 1)
    Next lColLoop
    
    Rows(lRowLoop).Delete
Next lRowLoop

With Application
    .ScreenUpdating = True
    .EnableEvents = True
    .Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic
    .DisplayAlerts = True
End With


End Sub
