## convert 1 column into 4 columns

Hello,

I have data in one row that consist of 4 variables.

What I want is

Every 1st row = Column A

Every 2nd row = column B

Every 3rd row = column c

Every 4th row = column D

So when you get to the 5th row you loop back to

5th row = Column A

6throw = column B

7th row = column c

8th row = column D

And so on in this loop until the rows of data are exhausted.

See image below as for the structure of data

## Re: convert 1 column into 4 columns

the Pivot default does not recognize that the data needs to be structure into 4 columns

it pivots all the data long.  so then you have an infinite number of columns from the 1 column.

## Re: convert 1 column into 4 columns

try a column

``````Column = SWITCH(TRUE(),
MOD([Index], 4) = 0, "Column A",
MOD([Index], 4) = 1, "Column B",
MOD([Index], 4) = 2, "Column C",
MOD([Index], 4) = 3, "Column D",
BLANK())``````
