Hello,
Can you please help with an Excel  macro.
Column "A",
if the cell is called Tracking ID
Then, I need to combine all cells after the  Tracking ID cell into the first next row cell.
until the cell in Column "C" has a name which starts with QA:
and clear cells.

Please see sample attached sample, before, after.

Thanks,

Hi Saqib,
Appreciate your help,
I'm trying the code on about 1000 Rows,
it just keeps looping and doesn't stop.

thanks

This file is very much different from the previous sample.

The infinite loop is because there is no QA: after the last Tracking ID.

Do you want to do it this way?
