    Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if this is possible. Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I have about 20 columns headed things like Product Number, Size, Colour, Weight etc

    So for example, one record might be something like:

    Product number Size Colour Weight Col5 Col6 Col7 Col8 etc
    32456 Large Blue 10kg etc etc etc etc etc


    I have about 10,000 of these records.

    What I need is to rearrange them in another sheet which just has 3 columns.

    Product number
    Attributes
    Values


    A record would look something like
    Product number Attributes Values
    32456 Size Large
    Colour Blue
    Weight 10kg
    etc etc
    etc etc
    etc etc

    Is it possible to transform the first format in the first spread sheet to the second format in the second sheet?

    Thanks

    Use Pivot Table.

    Thanks.

    I tried but I keep getting an error message saying the PivotTable field name is not valid.

    Presumably because some of the cells are blank so it looks like a PivotTable won't work.

    Attached.

    As you can see, sometimes, cells will be blank.

    Thanks.

    I tried a pivot table but it does not work for your type of data.

    Which are the columns to be used for the re-arrangement?

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    So it should be like this -
    Product Code Attributes Values
    12345 Material xx
    Primary Color xx
    Secondary Color xx
    Brand xx
    Size/Type xx
    Dimensions xx
    etc
    etc
    etc
    etc
    etc
    etc

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    Yes, that would be one record.

    Then underneath that would be the next record and so on for all 10,000.

    Thanks for the help.

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    The subscript range is linked to the sheet name. Check that the sheet name you have in your workbook matches jindon's code with respect to spelling and case.

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    Yes, I sorted out that subscript error.

    jindon, it kind of works!

    That file I uploaded was just a small sample. When I apply your code to the proper big spread sheet it misses out the first column, then lists the next 6 columns only and ignores all the others after that.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    *edit* in the file you uploaded it also misses out the first column 'material'.

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    The code was written specially for the data(sheet layouts) that you have uploaded.

    I can not say anything without seeing your actual sheet layouts.

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    Jindon is right. Thats why, AdamBee, you should ensure that your sample file matches exactly with the original file with respect to layout. The data can be dummy.

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    It's the same format. Except, aside from the product number there are actually 70 other columns in the main spreadsheet, not the 12 in the sample.

    I appreciate the help.

    Cheers

    Re: Rearranging data from one sheet to another

    Hello again,

    I have tried to adapt the original code jindon wrote to work with the full spreadsheet but I can't do it.

    I have attached the format the full spreadsheet is in. It is exactly the same format as the sample I uploaded before with exactly the same layout and the exact same requirements except there are 74 extra columns and not 12.

    sample2.xlsx

    Is there any way the existing code you wrote jindon can be easily adapted for 74 instead of 12? I have tried but to no avail.

    Regards
