How to transpose / convert columns and rows into single row?

Supposing you have a range of data as following screenshot shows, you can convert the range data into one row in a new worksheet with a long formula.

doc-convert-range-to-row1

Please apply the formula as this:

1. In a new worksheet of the active workbook, click cell A1, copy and paste this formula: =OFFSET(Sheet1!$A$1,((ROW()-1)*5)+(FLOOR(COLUMN()-1,4)/4),(COLUMN()-1)-(FLOOR(COLUMN()-1,4)))

Note: Sheet1!$A$1 is the worksheet and range references that you want to use.

ROW()-1)*5 in the above formula, 5 stands for the row number; and COLUMN()-1,4)/4, the 4 stands for the column number. You can change them as your need.

2. Then drag the fill handle over to right until number 0 is appeared. In this case, all the data in the range has been transposed into a single row in a new worksheet. See screenshot:

doc-convert-range-to-row2

The following VBA code also can help you convert a range of data to one row.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module window.

Sub TransformOneRow()
'Updateby20131120
Dim InputRng As Range, OutRng As Range
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set InputRng = Application.Selection
Set InputRng = Application.InputBox("Ranges to be transform :", xTitleId, InputRng.Address, Type:=8)
Set OutRng = Application.InputBox("Paste to (single cell):", xTitleId, Type:=8)
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
xRows = InputRng.Rows.Count
xCols = InputRng.Columns.Count
For i = 1 To xRows
    InputRng.Rows(i).Copy OutRng
    Set OutRng = OutRng.Offset(0, xCols + 0)
Next
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run the code, a dialog is popped out for you to select a range of contents you want to convert into a row, and click Ok, another popped-up dialog is for you to select a single cell to put out the result. See screenshots:

Then Click Ok, the contents in the selected range are converted into a row. See screenshot:

Note: In Set OutRng = OutRng.Offset(0, xCols + 0), you can change 0 to any number to meet your need.

For exampel, if you want to separate the results accroding to the original rows by one column, you can change Set OutRng = OutRng.Offset(0, xCols + 0) to Set OutRng = OutRng.Offset(0, xCols + 1), the results are shown as following:
