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.

VBA code: Transpose duplicate rows to multiple columns

Sub ConvertTable()
'Updateby Extendoffice
Dim xArr1 As Variant
Dim xArr2 As Variant
Dim InputRng As Range, OutRng As Range
Dim xRows As Long
xTitleId = "KutoolsforExcel"
Set InputRng = Application.Selection
Set InputRng = Application.InputBox("Range :", xTitleId, InputRng.Address, Type:=8)
Set OutRng = Application.InputBox("Out put to (single cell):", xTitleId, Type:=8)
Set OutRng = OutRng.Range("A1")
xArr1 = InputRng.Value
t = UBound(xArr1, 2): xRows = 1
With CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
    .CompareMode = 1
    For i = 2 To UBound(xArr1, 1)
        If Not .exists(xArr1(i, 1)) Then
            xRows = xRows + 1: .Item(xArr1(i, 1)) = VBA.Array(xRows, t)
            For ii = 1 To t
                xArr1(xRows, ii) = xArr1(i, ii)
            xArr2 = .Item(xArr1(i, 1))
            If UBound(xArr1, 2) < xArr2(1) + t - 1 Then
                ReDim Preserve xArr1(1 To UBound(xArr1, 1), 1 To xArr2(1) + t - 1)
                For ii = 2 To t
                    xArr1(1, xArr2(1) + ii - 1) = xArr1(1, ii)
            End If
            For ii = 2 To t
                xArr1(xArr2(0), xArr2(1) + ii - 1) = xArr1(i, ii)
            xArr2(1) = xArr2(1) + t - 1: .Item(xArr1(i, 1)) = xArr2
        End If
End With
OutRng.Resize(xRows, UBound(xArr1, 2)).Value = xArr1
End Sub

Only works if there's the same number of duplicates and call him a. It doesn't work at if have different numbers of duplicates.

This works fine for me with different number of duplicates Brian. I only had a problem with the first duplicate showing twice on my output, but that was very minor. I only wish I knew how to make it copy the duplicate results into a comma delimited format instead of new columns for each one.

Hello! Can anyone help me...

I found this code to turn rows of data with a unique ID into a single row per ID with multiple columns (min column 5 - including ID, maximum columns 25 - including ID). Then it deletes all of the duplicate rows based on unique ID. This code sort of works, the only problem is it isn't transferring two columns of data.

The number of rows of data per unique ID varies from 1 to 6 (therefore I would need minimum 5 columns to maximum 25 columns)

There are 20,000 rows of data but I can break the data up by department for a minimum of 5,000 rows of data and run each department separately.

Thanks for your help!

My data looks something like this

3 CPR US 567 6/19/2019
3 AET US 568 6/19/2019
4 CPR US 6/19/2019


I want it to look like this

A B C D E F G H I J K L M ETC.....
3 CPR US 567 6/19/2019 AET US 568 6/19/2019

Here is the code I found that sort of works (probably for what it was written for, it carries over only the data in columns D and E and omits column B & C... leaving two blank columns per data set. I like that it deletes the duplicates after moving all of the data to a single column based on unique ID

Sub Addresses_To_Columns()

Dim lastRow As Long
Dim addressCount As Integer: addressCount = 0

lastRow = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

For i = lastRow To 3 Step -1
If Cells(i, 1).Value = Cells(i - 1, 1).Value Then
addressCount = addressCount + 1
Range(Cells(i - 1, 10), Cells(i - 1, (addressCount * 5) + 10)) = Range(Cells(i, 4), Cells(i, (addressCount * 5) + 4)).Value
addressCount = 0
End If
Next i

End Sub
