    Post Convert data in columns to rows...

    I have a simple table consisting of a a column containing unique ID's followed by many columns with with data. I would like to convert the data in the additional columns into sequential rows. Attached is a sample spreadsheet of what I am trying to accomplish:

    Any idea if this is possible in Excel?

    Thanks in advance,

    MG

    Welcome to the forum MapGuy99.

    I notice you have posted in 'Charting and Pivots'. Is that a requirement.
    Yes it is possible with formula(s).
    I am working with the assumption that you wish to work directly from data in columns A:C and not from an intermediate step in E:F.

    Is that correct?

    Yes, A:C represents the source data, and E:F is the desired result.

    Re: Convert data in columns to rows...

    Can be done with Power Query. Unpivot your data.

    Highlight your table. Bring into POwer Query Editor. Highlight column 1 and on the Transform Table, select Unpivot. Unpivot other Data. Highlight Attribute Column. Right Click and Remove. Highlight Value Column and rename Attribute. Close and Load

    Power Query is a free AddIn for Excel 2010 and 2013, and is built-in functionality from Excel 2016 onwards (where it is referred to as "Get & Transform Data").

    It is a powerful yet simple way of getting, changing and using data from a broad variety of sources, creating steps which may be easily repeated and refreshed. I strongly recommend learning how to use Power Query - it's among the most powerful functionalities of Excel.

    - Follow this link to learn how to install Power Query in Excel 2010 / 2013.

    - Follow this link for an introduction to Power Query functionality.

    - Follow this link for a video which demonstrates how to use Power Query code provided.

    Re: Convert data in columns to rows...

    I was understanding you wanted output as in Sheet2 A2:F3. My bad.

    For E:F output .....
    If you are interested in formula way try this formula in E2 and fill down until you get blanks.
