    Stacking multiple columns into one with duplication of other columns

    Hi, I have a problem which I have tried to solve for some time but without success. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Basically, my problem is that I have several columns which should be merged into one. An example
    Row Column A Column B Column C Column D Column E
    1 wa wc 4 2
    2 wa 3 4
    3 wc wb wa 1 5

    In this example I want 6 rows. The first row should contain column A, D and E (with the column values of wa, 4, 2), second row column B (i.e. wc, 4,2) third row column A again (i.e. wa,3,4) fourth row column A (i.e. wc,1,5), fifth row column B (i.e. wb,1,5) sixth row column C (i.e. wa,1,5).

    I have attached a example of before/after transformation!

    Hi doktor. Welcome to the forum.

    The explanation does not resemble the workbook.

    Also there is no indication of what to do with columns F and G. 'After' reflects changes there as well.

    Thanks!
    The F and G are just recopied versions of the before. Meaning that row 8 (in the before) is translated into row 8 and row 9, where column D,E,F,G are exact copies of row 8, but for row 8 and 9 now.

    Hmm, let me see if I understand this.

    Transformation steps...
    1. Filter and remove entire row when D column has "." or Blank
    2. Then If B or C column has value, then insert row below and move value to A column. D:G is copied from original row and pasted to inserted row.
    Repeat step 2 until you clear B & C column.

    Is this right?
