I have an excel spreadsheet that I need to be able to combine the day the data that was entered with the month and year at the top of the sheet. I also need the  number entered on that date with the code in column A mover to another spreadsheet. This is way above me scope so I will need a lot of help with this. Hope someone can help me. I am uploading a sample of what I need in Test 1 with both sheet 1 and sheet 2.
Thank you for the help. I need to export so it will look like this on the next spread sheet. I Have added this to sheet 2 on my Test 1 file.

A PivotTable would be the easiest answer.

Here's an example of the finished product. When you add more data to the table, the days column will expand accordingly.

Thank you but that will not work as I need it in the format that I have on sheet 2 as I need to import this data to another program and it will only take it in that format.
Hope someone can help me. Thank you.

I think I misread the question. I thought you wanted to go from Sheet2 to Sheet1, but you want to go from Sheet1 to Sheet2.

Please find attached. You will need to redo the Filter if the data changes.

I still don't think this will work. I think I will need a vscript or Macro as I have over 180 of these sheets per month and need to export the data to 1 excel spread sheet for each month. Then I need to be able to upload all that data to the Program. I am going to upload a script that I am using on another Spread sheet and it works great but on that one I do not need the dates attach to the number entered for that day. Hope this will help.
Thank you.

>> I have over 180 of these sheets per month

It would help if you could actually include all the material facts in your question, and not dribble them out over many replies.

Please post the sample spreadsheet in Excel.

I am sorry that I have made this so long and draw out. I am uploading the 2 files that I am working with. I need to copy each code and number and the date it was entered to Test A from Test B. The date is very important. As we do this every month for about 180 people I am looking to make it a automated as possible. Thank you for your help.

Yes, it's possible, but it's non-trivial - especially if you want to make it as automated as possible for 180 people, it will need a lot of flexibility. It would probably take a few hours to get a good solution, with all the testing you need - but it would reduce your company's costs and probably improve reliability. I suggest you post this as a separate question and put all of what you now want up front.

As I said, the above is possible, but it is non-trivial and will take several hours to do.

You may wish to hire me to accomplish this. If you wish to do this, click on my name above and click Hire Me.

Overall, a solution would reduce your company's costs and probably improve reliability.
