If the number of rows is always the same, here's one way:

With the original data in Sheet1, put this in Sheet2!A1
=INDEX(Sheet1!$A:$A,(ROW()-1)*3+COLUMN())
and copy right for three rows and down as far as needed.

OTOH, if the length of the list varies, try instead
=IF(above_formula="", "", above_formula)
and copy right for three rows and down past the maximum length needed.

Hope this helps getting started.

Thanks, I tried that, but I got an error on the second part of "Sheet1!$A:$A"

So I tried this other suggestion from another user:
in B1: =INDIRECT("R"&REF.ROW(A1)*3-2&"C1";0)
in C1: =INDIRECT("R"&REF.ROW(A1)*3-1&"C1";0)
in D1: =INDIRECT("R"&REF.ROW(A1)*3&"C1";0)
(... WELL i TRANSLATED HER THE FORMULA FROM iTALIAN eXCEL... HOPE IT'S THE SAME :)

And it worked fine!.

Thanks for your help!
