Item 1 123 222 567

Item 2 342 213 456
183 234
Item 3 87 234 345

Iam searching for a macro which convert this format to a raw-data
format to use for pivot and further analysis.

Activity Date Number
Item 1 01-01 123
Item 1 01-02 222
Item 1 01-03 567
Item 1 01-04 222

Assume that your table is in Sheet2, then you can put these formulae
in another sheet in the cells stated:

A2: =INDEX(Sheet2!A$2:A$4,INT((ROW(Sheet2!A1)-1)/5)+1)

B2: =INDEX(Sheet2!B$1:F$1,MOD(ROW(Sheet2!A1)-1,5)+1)

C2: =INDEX(Sheet2!B$2:F$4,INT((ROW(Sheet2!A1)-1)/5)+1,MOD(ROW
(Sheet2!A1)-1,5)+1)

These assume that you have five columns of data in your table (i.e
columns B to F) and that these occupy rows 2 to 4 with headers in row
1 and in column A. So, if you have more data than in your example (you
said "etc") then change all the 5s to the number of columns, and
change range references to suit.

Then you can copy the data down as far as required.

Hope this helps.

And what's wrong with formulas, Herbert?

Pete

Thanks for your responses

Tried both methods but not working yet.
With the formula method i get an error message #NAME
And the pivot option is not supported in Excel 2003 ?
