    Smile How to convert a horizontal vector with blanks into a vertical one without blanks

    I have a row that is 400 columns wide with values sporadically thrown around in it. Majority of the values are blanks. Is there a way, without using visual basic, to put these nicely into a single column without blanks, using formulas only? There will never be more than 50 non-blank values, thus no more than 50 cells with formulas. I attached a sample file so it's a bit easier to understand what I am after. Thank you!

    You either quit or become really good at it. There are no other choices.

    copy the row,
    paste transposed
    sort
    (record it as macro)

    I wanted to see if I can do it without VB - formulas only.

    Try this...

    This array formula** entered in B9:

    =IFERROR(INDEX($3:$3,SMALL(IF(D$3:OM$3<>"",COLUMN(D$3:OM$3)),ROWS(B$9:B9))),"")

    ** array formulas need to be entered using the key
    combination of CTRL,SHIFT,ENTER (not just ENTER).
    Hold down both the CTRL key and the SHIFT key
    then hit ENTER.

    Copy down until you get blanks.
