Hi

You can use the transpose function in Excel like below:
Tranpose
You copy the column A values and paste special / Transpose in the column B

Thanks for responding.

I have literally hundreds of records that need to be converted into columnar data and it seems to me that both suggested methods require work - either record by record or annotation of each record. Am I missing something?

You are missing something. My solution is entirely formulaic, so you copy them down.
