    Excel 2013 continue copying in the next sheet once reached the limit of columns

    I have almost one million numbers of rows and I'd like to transpose them in columns, but since the limit of columns is way lower than that, I was wondering if it's possible to go around this problem and continue pasting in the next sheets automatically, until all the rows are transposed.

    I know that maybe it's not the best way to handle such an amount of columns, but I don't know very much about SQL and using databases, I would appreciate any advice on basic guides that cover what I need to know for this situation though.

    Thank you in advance.

    Max number of columns in Excel 2007 (you havent said which version youre using) is 16384.
    1,000,000 / 16384 = 61.
    Thats 61 sheets, the limit on worksheets is the available system resources so it may work on one machine but not another.


    Are you sure you cannot summarize that data to produce less than a million rows?
    Do you REALLY need that level of detail?

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.
