Points of My Scenario
1. I have a spreadsheet with 2 (two) columns, A and B
2. I need to generate a column, C, that has alternating values/rows of columns A and B
Point of Clarification: If columns A and B each have 10 rows, then column C should have 20 rows

QUESTION: How do I accomplish this in Microsoft Excel?

You could use this formula in column C and copy down as required....

=IF(MOD(ROW(), 2)=1, INDEX(A:A, EVEN(ROW())/2), INDEX(B:B, EVEN(ROW())/2))

...or use this macro...

Sub AlternateRows()

    Dim rw As Long
    For rw = 1 To Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
        With Cells(Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp)
            .Offset(1, 0) = Cells(rw, "A")
            .Offset(2, 0) = Cells(rw, "B")
        End With
    Next
    
End Sub

Hi Wayne Taylor, I tested the simpler function option and it worked like magic. I was so amazed.
What is your expertise/profession? What explains your knowledge of this esoteric area? (please, sir) :-)

I am so grateful. A thousand thanks!
