I have my data in the following format in one column:

AMERICAS\A.GIRARD
Alejandro
Girard
No

AMERICAS\A.M.LAWRENCE
Alex
Lawrence
Yes

AMERICAS\A.MATVIENK
Alexander
Matvienk
No

AMERICAS\AARON.FUHRR
Aaron
Fuhrr
No

Please note that there is a gap of one row between each set of Data of 4 lines.
I need this data to be organized in the following manner, either on same sheet or the new sheet does not matter:

AMERICAS\A.GIRARD       Alejandro       Girard       No
AMERICAS\A.M.LAWRENCE       Alex       Lawrence       Yes
AMERICAS\A.MATVIENK      Alexander      Matvienko      No
AMERICAS\AARON.FUHRR       Aaron       Fuhrr       No

Please help.

Regards

Imran

Assuming the data starts in Sheet1, and you are putting the new table starting in cell A1 of another sheet:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,COLUMN(A1)-1 + (ROW(A1)-1)*5,0)

Open in new window

A bit more useful - assuming the data starts in Sheet1$A$1, and you are putting the new table starting in cell $a$1 of any sheet:

=OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,(COLUMN(A1)-COLUMN($A$1)) + (ROW(A1)-ROW($A$1))*5,0)

Change Sheet1!$A$1 to the correct location of the original data, and change the other two $A$1 to be the starting location of the new column. Both of them need to have the two dollar signs.

Copy this across three columns and down three rows for the full effect.

It's because you have two line gaps in rows 75 and 76.

Pls run this macro in your excel, its will copy data from sheet1 and transpose & paste it into sheet2......

Sub Traspose()
i = 1
y = 1
x = 1

For i = 1 To Sheets("sheet1").Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
    If IsEmpty(Sheets("sheet1").Cells(i, 1)) Then
    y = 1
    x = x + 1
    Sheets("sheet1").Cells(i, 1).Copy Destination:=Sheets("sheet2").Cells(x, y)
    Else
    Sheets("sheet1").Cells(i, 1).Copy Destination:=Sheets("sheet2").Cells(x, y)
    y = y + 1
    End If
Next

End Sub
