You may try something like this......

Sub ReArrangeData()
Dim sws As Worksheet, dws As Worksheet
Set sws = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set dws = Sheets("Target")
dws.Cells.Clear
On Error Resume Next
sws.Columns("A:A").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 1).Copy dws.Range("A1")
sws.Columns("A:A").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants, 2).Copy dws.Range("B1")
dws.Activate
End Sub

Try the suggested code on your sample workbook as the code assumes that there are two sheets called Target and Sheet1 in the workbook where Sheet1 contains the raw data. If the sheet names are different, please change them in the code as per the actual sheet names.

In that case, try this.....
Sub ReArrangeDataV2()
Dim sws As Worksheet, dws As Worksheet
Dim lr As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set sws = Sheets("Sheet1")
Set dws = Sheets("Target")
lr = sws.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
dws.Cells.Clear
sws.Columns(1).Insert
sws.Range("A1:A" & lr).Formula = "=IF(MOD(ROW(),2)=1,NA(),2)"
sws.Range("A:A").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, 16).Offset(0, 1).Copy dws.Range("A1")
sws.Range("A:A").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas, 1).Offset(0, 1).Copy dws.Range("B1")
sws.Columns(1).Delete
dws.Activate
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub
