In column B, copied down from cell B2:
=IF(MOD(ROW()-1,\$E\$8)=1,\$H\$3&A2&\$H\$4,B1&\$H\$3&A2&\$H\$4)

In column C, copied down from cell C2:
=IF(MOD(ROW(),\$E\$8)-1<>0,"",B2)

Cells referred to in formula:

H3 = ""
H4 = ;;
E8 = 4

Column B concatenates the values of each row in column A, restarting every 4th row.
Column C pulls the result from column B every 4th row, leaving the other 3 blank.

You can then filter and copy and paste the result from col c to where required.

Thanks

Hi,

as a macro
Sub macro()

myCnt = Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row - 1
For Idx = 1 To myCnt / 4 + 1 Step 1
Range("E" & Idx + 1) = _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 1) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 2) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 3) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 4) & [B3]
Range("E" & Idx + 1).Value = Replace(Range("E" & Idx + 1).Value, Chr(34) & Chr(34) & ";;", "")
Next
End Sub

Looks like you entered it as text, delete the apostrophe at the start of the formula in B2 and C2 and then copy down.

Corrected file attached.

Corrected code

Sub macro()

myCnt = Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row - 1
For Idx = 1 To myCnt / 4 + 1 Step 1
Range("E" & Idx + 1) = _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 1) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 2) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 3) & [B3] & _
[B2] & Range("A" & 1 + ((Idx - 1) * 4) + 4) & [B3]
Range("E" & Idx + 1).Value = Replace(Range("E" & Idx + 1).Value, [B3]& [B2], "")
Next
End Sub

Thanks for the right answers both, tested  ok
except of merge(concatenate) the cells can we do transpose from column to rows (not to merge) without separation chars?

For both solutions can you make comments and add general variables that so i can change it easy for another use? , THANKS ANYWAY FOR QUICK RESPONSE

Finance AnalystCommented:
For the transpose question, I suggest you raise a separate question.

For the  variables question, changing the cells that I referred to will change the result, ie changing the 4 in E8 to 5 will change the result to 5 entries per result on the 5th row of each block.
