How to create a column from single cell

Hello,

 

I need to create a column from a single cell. I have multiple single cells in table and need to convert them in to columns.

Data from this single cell needs to populate all cells in new column.

 

If you can help me, I would be very grateful. Thank you, very much. 

 

Best regards,

 

Bojan

Hi Bojan,

 

The cells are in columns. So your expected result isn't clear. Please share a dummy sample and the desired result.

Hi,

 

Please find attached pictures.

 

Idea is to create new columns from one cell, not using fill down or fill up or deleting rows.

 

First picture is actual state and second is desired.

Hey, 

 

as there are single cells distributed across the excel sheet, this becomes very cumbersome. Please provide an Excel workbook with sample data, upload the workbook to onedrive or dropbox and share the link.

Tom

Hi Bojan,

 

I'm afraid we can't format that table in one go. Can you provide more details, please?

1. There could be more tables like that. How do they organize?

2. Which cells are fixed?

3. Could there be any changes in position or format of these cells?

You could try VBA or Python to format it.
