I have an excel table where each two consecutive rows are one "record" and I need to extract data from both rows and combine the data into one row in another workbook?  Can you help me please?

An example of the table is attached.

Thank you!

See Sheet2, using Index.
Formulas for column A to J (first row) are identical
A2: =IF(LEN(INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$65536,(ROW()-1)*2,COLUMN()))=0,"",INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$65536,(ROW()-1)*2,COLUMN()))
Copy to the other columns B:J, row 2.
Formulas for column K to V (second row) are also identical.
K2: =IF(LEN(INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$65536,(ROW()-1)*2+1,COLUMN()))=0,"",INDEX(Sheet1!$1:$65536,(ROW()-1)*2+1,COLUMN()))
Copy to the other columns L:V, row 2.
Then copy the entire columns in row 2 down, enough to get all rows in table, and delete the empty at the bottom.
Move the sheet to an new workbook.

Your sample workbook does not show us how the data should look after the 'combination' process.
