Easycapital,
You have 24 hidden columns (B through Y). Will the hidden columns eventually have unneeded data in them?

Yes.

Looks.
Though not sure how it works.

DougCommented:
Run it from the VBA window (ALT+F11). In the project window (top left), click on the Modules folder. Double click on basStructureData. At the top right of the VBA window, look for the dropdown list that reads: (Declarations). Click that dropdown arrow and select ConvertTable, then press the F5 key. If this works for you then we can add a button to activate it.

You can have the same date and milestone for multiple projects. Each project just needs to be on its own row.

I accepted the solution because it creates the 3 columns as indicated in my original question above.

though still need to resolve having multiple Projects and milestones with same date how do I get that to work.

This would resolve my following question:

Format is not a problem is more to find the solution to have multiple answers in same cel..
