This problem has been part amended - refer to the work completed in my previous question. here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_28547524.html

The data and price data have been shifted to the left one column from the original data. (This macro is in the attached example)

The original algorithm checked for blank cells in column A as indicators of month/year and price information.  That will not work with this new layout.

You might consider code like shown below. After parsing, it removes the duplicate rows.
Sub Transpose_Listings()
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim cl As Range
    Dim strAddress As String, strSub As String, strType As String, strMonth As String
    Dim intBed As Integer, intBath As Integer, intCar As Integer, intYear As Integer
    Dim v As Variant, varPrice As Variant
    Dim intRow As Long
    
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set rng = Worksheets(1).Range("A2:A" & Worksheets(1).Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
    
    On Error Resume Next
    Sheets("Results").Delete
    On Error GoTo 0
    Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(1)
    ActiveSheet.Name = "Results"
    Range("A1").Value = "Address"
    Range("B1").Value = "Suburb"
    Range("C1").Value = "Bed"
    Range("D1").Value = "Bath"
    Range("E1").Value = "Car"
    Range("F1").Value = "Type"
    Range("G1").Value = "Month"
    Range("H1").Value = "Year"
    Range("I1").Value = "Price"
    intRow = 2
    
    For Each cl In rng
        Select Case LCase(cl.Value)
            Case "address" 'start of data block
                'skip
            Case "date and price list"
                'skip
            Case "date"
                'skip
            Case ""
                'skip
            Case Else
                If IsDate(cl.Value) Then            'pricing data - write to Results sheet
                    v = CDate(cl.Value)
                    strMonth = Format(v, "mmmm")
                    intYear = Year(v)
                    If InStr(1, cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, " ") = 0 Then
                        varPrice = cl.Offset(0, 1).Value
                    Else
                        varPrice = Val(Mid(cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, 2, InStr(1, cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, " ") - 1))
                    End If
                    With Sheets("Results")
                        .Cells(intRow, 1) = strAddress

                        .Cells(intRow, 7) = strMonth
                        .Cells(intRow, 8) = intYear
                        .Cells(intRow, 9) = varPrice
                    End With
                    intRow = intRow + 1
                Else
                    intBed = 0

Hi Brad,

Thanks. That is fabulous.

Can you now add a function that inserts the correct postcode from the postcode list worksheet?

Is this possible? Or should I make another question?

Thanks again,

Greg

Greg,
I revised the code shown below to add the postcode feature for you. I used arrays to make the code run a little faster and be more compact. I also fixed an issue that occurred when the address has two or more commas (it had been splitting the street address & suburb at the first comma rather than the last one).
Sub Transpose_Listings()
    Dim cl As Range, rgLookup As Range, rng As Range
    Dim strAddress As String, strSub As String, strType As String, strMonth As String
    Dim intBed As Integer, intBath As Integer, intCar As Integer, intYear As Integer
    Dim Postcode As Variant, v As Variant, varPrice As Variant
    Dim intRow As Long
    
    Application.DisplayAlerts = False
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    
    Set rng = Worksheets(1).Range("A2:A" & Worksheets(1).Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Row)
    Set rgLookup = Worksheets("Postcode & Suburb List").Range("A1").CurrentRegion
    
    On Error Resume Next
    Sheets("Results").Delete
    On Error GoTo 0
    Sheets.Add After:=Sheets(1)
    ActiveSheet.Name = "Results"
    Range("A1:J1").Value = Array("Address", "Suburb", "Postcode", "Bed", "Bath", "Car", "Type", "Month", "Year", "Price")
    intRow = 2
    
    For Each cl In rng
        Select Case LCase(cl.Value)
            Case "address" 'start of data block
                'skip
            Case "date and price list"
                'skip
            Case "date"
                'skip
            Case ""
                'skip
            Case Else
                If IsDate(cl.Value) Then            'pricing data - write to Results sheet
                    v = CDate(cl.Value)
                    strMonth = Format(v, "mmmm")
                    intYear = Year(v)
                    If InStr(1, cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, " ") = 0 Then
                        varPrice = cl.Offset(0, 1).Value
                    Else
                        varPrice = Val(Mid(cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, 2, InStr(1, cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, " ") - 1))
                    End If
                    With Sheets("Results")
                        .Cells(intRow, 1).Resize(1, 10).Value = _
                            Array(strAddress, strSub, Postcode, intBed, intBath, intCar, strType, strMonth, intYear, varPrice)
                    End With
                    intRow = intRow + 1
                Else

                    Postcode = Application.Match(strSub, rgLookup.Columns(2), 0)
                    Postcode = IIf(IsError(Postcode), "", rgLookup.Cells(CLng(Postcode), 1).Value)
                    If cl.Offset(0, 1).Value <> "" Then intBed = Int(Mid(cl.Offset(0, 1), InStr(1, cl.Offset(0, 1).Value, ":") + 2))

PS. Column I has the '$' sign.  This should be in column J.
Can you fix?  I've had a look and I have no idea.

Note change to "With Sheets("Results") block at bottom of sub where I set the NumberFormat property of column J. Had been column I.
    With Sheets("Results")
        .Range("A:G").EntireColumn.AutoFit
        .Range("J2:J" & intRow).NumberFormat = "$#,##0"
    End With
    
    RemoveDuplicates
    
    Application.DisplayAlerts = True
    MsgBox "Done."
End Sub
