Hi, is there a quick way to manipulate data when it is in this sort of format? (see attached)

I have 7 workbooks where the data is spread out like this and I need to find a fast way to get the data into a tabular format. So basically 'name', 'phone', 'street' and 'suburb' are all column headings and the data falls below that.

Thanks

Give this a try.
Sub GoTabular()
Dim arrIn As Variant
Dim arrOut As Variant
Dim I As Long
Dim J As Long
Dim cnt As Long

    arrIn = Sheets("Sheet1").UsedRange.Columns(2)
    
    ReDim arrOut(1 To UBound(arrIn, 1) / 5, 1 To 4)

    For I = LBound(arrIn, 1) To UBound(arrIn, 1) Step 5
        cnt = cnt + 1
        For J = 1 To 4
            arrOut(cnt, J) = arrIn(I + J - 1, 1)
        Next J
    Next I
    
    Sheets.Add
    
    Range("A1:D1").Value = Array("Name", "Phone", "Street", "Suburb")
    
    Range("A2").Resize(UBound(arrOut, 1), UBound(arrOut, 2)).Value = arrOut
    
End Sub
