Hello,

I have a excel spreadsheet that has a bunch of companys with full addresses, phone numbers, etc. They are all in column A. I want the information to be horizontal on the spreadsheet. So all the company names in COlumn a, all the address in column b, phone in c...and so on. Is there a formula that I can run?

Please help!!!

suppose data is like this from A1 down to A9


a
ad1
1
s
ad2
2
d
ad3
3




now in sheet 1 in A1 type (or copy paste this formula)

=(IF(ROW(A1)<=COUNTA(Sheet1!$A:$A)/3,OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,(COLUMN(A1)-1)*3+ROW(A1)-1,0,1,1),0))


copy A1 both down and to the right till you get 0

delete 0s. do you get what you want?
In sheet1 now you are having 3 sets of data. you can have as many sets as you like but in each set the first is name, second address and third phone no;.
If it's just a one time thing - you copy the information, then paste special - hit the 'transpose' button

that doesn't work...it just copies the data to the second sheet exactly the way it is on the first sheet.
