    Cool using transpose to copy from a column to a row

    Hello

    i am trying to use excel to 2013 to copy a column in sheet1 to a row in sheet2.

    by using transpose i can copy the data from the column to the row but cant seem to link each cell to its appropriate cell i.e. - A2 (sheet2) to B1 (sheet1) , B2 (sheet2) to B2(sheet1) C2 (sheet2) B3(sheet1) ect

    also any cells on sheet 1 with no data value to be linked to sheet 2 - at the moment if there is no data in the cell it does not link. it does link if i do it manually so am hoping there is a function for this.


    any help gratefully received - before my swear box over flows !

    thanks Sarah

    Re: using transpose to copy from a column to a row

    Alternatively, and based on the previous post, this formula avoids the use of the volatile INDIRECT function

    Be very, very careful using IFERROR ! It hides ALL errors which is not always what you want to get correct results

    Re: using transpose to copy from a column to a row

    Hi Willem

    Thank you very much - yes that is what i am looking to do !

    i can do that manually for each cell, but i have a lot of data to transpose i.e. 60 columns on various sheets linked to rows in a single sheet. - is there a process for this or do i have to link each cell individually do you know ?

    thanks sarah

    Re: using transpose to copy from a column to a row

    Hello

    Still trying to persevere with this spreadsheet and many cups of coffee later I think I may be close but not quite there in my crash course in excel ! could you possibly have a look at the following and see where I might be going wrong :


    From sheet 1 – 60 I am looking to link cells H13 through to H28 to sheet 70 in row M through to AB


    (So I have the following my first sheet 1 is 77 hereford)

    =index(77 Hereford a!$h13:h23,column(S|$m10:ab10))


    Many Thanks

    Excel is very unforgiving when it comes to getting the syntax right. The formula is below & on the attached sheet.

    I just noticed I got the sheet name the wrong way round, if you want to copy it directly from this. It should read:
