    Taking a list of data and transforming it + adding a drop down to make it searchable

    Hi there,

    In the attached file I have a list of data in the 'Raw Data' worksheet that I want to reformat into what you see in the 'Summary' worksheet. Additionally I would like there to be a drop-down list by date on the Summary worksheet that allows me to select dates to populate the information in that format. Is that possible via a function? I am familiar with PQ if that helps any.

    That worked great for transforming the data, thank you! I learned how to use unpivot in PQ as well which is very useful.

    On to the second question in my OP, I would like there to be a drop-down list populated by date on the Summary worksheet that allows me to select weekly dates to populate the information in that format. For example, if I chose from the drop-down "9/14/2020" it populates data from that week in the aforementioned format. Is this possible?

    I created a parameter query where you will select a date in the following format 9/20/2020 and input it and then select Refresh All on the Data Tab. See Attached file.

    This is a step in the right direction! Is there a way to make it a dropdown of dates? And where can I go to learn how you did this? It's not immediately apparent to me.

    Thank you!

    As to a drop down of dates:
    As they appear to be workdays (Monday:Friday) you may want the first cell, say cell XFD2, in the list to reference the earliest date on the Excel Help Forum sheet, i.e. ='Excel Help Forum'!B2
    Cells XFD3 and down are populated using: =WORKDAY(XFD2,1)
    Cell H2 is then populated using data validation with a source of the list of cells XFD2 and down. i.e. =$XFD$2:$XFD$100
    Let us know if you have any questions.
    Consider taking the time to add to the reputation of everybody that has taken the time to respond to your query.
