## How to transpose cells in one column based on unique values in another column?

Supposing, you have a range of data which contains two columns, now, you want to transpose cells in one column to horizontal rows based on unique values in another column to get the following result. Do you have any good ideas to solve this problem in Excel?

Transpose cells in one column based on unique values with formulas

Transpose cells in one column based on unique values with VBA code

With the following array formulas, you can extract the unique values and transpose their corresponding data into horizontal rows, please do as follows:

1. Enter this array formula: =INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$16, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:\$D1, \$A\$2:\$A\$16), 0)) into a blank cell, D2, for example, and press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys together to get the correct result, see screenshot:

Note: In the above formula, A2:A16 is the column that you want to list the unique values from, and D1 is the cell above this formula cell.

2. Then drag the fill handle down to the cells to extract all the unique values, see screenshot:

3. And then go on entering this formula into cell E2: =IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$16, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D2:D2,\$B\$2:\$B\$16)+IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$16<>\$D2, 1, 0), 0)), 0), and remember to press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys to get the result, see screenshot:

Note: In above formula: B2:B16 is the column data that you want to transpose, A2:A16 is the column that you want to transpose the values based on, and D2 contains the unique value that you have extracted in Step 1.

4. Then drag the fill handle to right of the cells that you want to list the transposed data until displays 0, see screenshot:

5. And then continue dragging the fill handle down to the range of cells to get the transposed data as following screenshot shown:

May be the formulas are complex for you to understand, here, you can run the following VBA code to get the desired result you need.

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 cells in one column based on unique values in another column:

``````Sub transposeunique()

Like many people in the below my column "b" has duplicates I still want to appear in a column, I.e.
How to do the transpose if B column doesn't have unique values but still need those values
KTE 100
KTE 100

Can you shared a modified equation that works in that scenario? I appears lots of people have this question below without an answer.
Thank you,

have you solve the problem?

Hello, Alicia,If there are duplicate values in the second column, you should apply the below array formula:=IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$16,SMALL(IF(\$D2=\$A\$2:\$A\$16,ROW(\$A\$2:\$A\$16)-ROW(\$A\$2)+1),COLUMN(A1))),"")
After inserting the formula, please remember to press Shift + Ctrl + Enter keys.

how would you do the first order but with multiple columns of data for each product? Like if KTO and KTE had multiple pieces of data in columns C, D, E,...

This was the formula used:

=IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$16, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D2:D2,\$B\$2:\$B\$16)+IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$16<>\$D2, 1, 0), 0)), 0)

This works, but it gives me duplicates. Is there a way to make it not?

I have a data set which has 3 columns presented below:

Column A Column B Column C

Country1 Year1 Value1

Country1 Year2 Value2

Country1 Year3 Value3,

Country2 Year1 Value1

Country2 Year3 Value3,

...........

I need to combine these 3 columns in a table like this:

Year1 Year2 Year3 ................................. YearX

Country1 Value1 Value2 Value3

Country2 Value1 #Missing Value3

.....
.....
.....

CountryX Valuex ..................

The problem i am facing is that for some data in column A i don't have values for each year only for some.(For example country 2 has missing values for Year 2)

Is there a way to work around this issue and resolve it?

Thank you in advance!

I have a data set which has multiple IDs in column A, and has connected data in column B. I used the above formula and altered it a bit so that I am transposing the cells in the column B into a row based on the unique ID tied to it in column A. The formula used to identify the unique IDs is: =INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$13409, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:\$D1, \$A\$2:\$A\$13409), 0)). The formula used to do the transposing is: =IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$13409, MATCH(0, IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$13409<>\$D2, 1, 0)+COUNTIF(\$D2:D2,\$B\$2:\$B\$13409), 0)), "N/A"). Both given in the article, only slightly altered.

The issue is my data set in column B has duplicates, sometimes appearing one after another, and I need all of the values in the column to be presented in the rows.

The image attached is what I would like the table to show (this is a small sample size, the true dataset has over 13,000 entries). What is happening now is when a repeat value is encountered, it will not count it.
i.e. Row 9 for ID 11980 now only shows 0 -31.79 -0.19 -0.74 N/A N/A .... when what I need it to show instead is 0 0 -31.79 -0.19 -0.74 0 0 N/A N/A ....

Is there a way to work around this issue and resolve it?

Thank you in advance!

Did you ever get a response/resolution to this challenge? I have the same one.

I have a data set in Columns A (Unique ID) - E. Each row has data based on the ID#, there are multiple rows for each ID# but I want one row per ID# with all of the other data in columns (it would be 5 columns long minimum and 25 maximum depending on how many each unique ID has). I found a code but it only works for two columns. I had to concatenate the four columns (not including ID) then delimit after running the macro (lot of work). For 15,000 rows of data this is extra time consuming. Is there an endless column macro that would work? Thanks in advance everyone for your help!

The macro did not work. It just copied the contents in cell A1.

So I am working for a company. We have columns for info such as Last name, first name, rank, section, phone number, address. Is there a way I can use a similar formula to transpose the entire row of info to a column by names?

Hi Skyyang, Love this, any chance you could get it to work for four columns? again just using the first two as a comparator, or better still the ability to choose the number of columns before selecting them? I took a look at your script, wouldn't have a clue on how to achieve this...

With the formula below:

=IFERROR(INDEX(\$B\$2:\$B\$45, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D2:D2,\$B\$2:\$B\$45)+IF(\$A\$2:\$A\$10<>\$D2, 1, 0), 0)), 0)

How can I transpose the data using approximate matches? Say, I want to extract all the values from Column B that match the first 9 characters / digits from Column A? Column B has 11 characters while A only 9. thank you!

i want to transpose duplicate values too (all values - unique + duplicate) and not just unique values. Can you give the formula for that too.

Is there a way of doing this in reverse? I.e. data in rows of varying length and so sorting it into two columns? See attached.

Hi,Didin，

Can you give your problem more clearly or detailed?
You can insert an example screenshot for your problem.
Thank you!

I just want to do the opposite. Like i have the end result already, and i want to achieve the first step.

I want to do the opposite as well. Any solution you got gents?

Hello, guys,
To get the opposite result based on the example of this article, you can apply the following VBA code: (Note:When selecting the data range that you want to transpose, please exclude the header row)

Sub TransposeUnique_2()
Dim xLRow, xLCount As Long
Dim xRg As Range
Dim xOutRg As Range
Dim xObjRRg As Range
Dim xTxt As String
Dim xCount As Long
Dim xVRg As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set xRg = Application.InputBox("please select data range:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
Set xRg = Application.Intersect(xRg, xRg.Worksheet.UsedRange)
If xRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
If (xRg.Rows.count < 2) Or _
(xRg.Areas.count > 1) Then
MsgBox "Invalid selection", , "Kutools for Excel"
Exit Sub
End If
Set xOutRg = Application.InputBox("please select output range(specify one cell):", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
If xOutRg Is Nothing Then Exit Sub
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
xLCount = xRg.Columns.count
For xLRow = 1 To xRg.Rows.count
Set xObjRRg = Range(xRg.Cells(xLRow, 2), xRg.Cells(xLRow, xLCount)).SpecialCells(xlCellTypeConstants)
xObjRRg.Copy
xOutRg.Offset(, 1).PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteAll, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks:=False, Transpose:=True
Application.CutCopyMode = False
Range(Cells(xOutRg.Row, xOutRg.Column), Cells(xOutRg.Row + xObjRRg.count - 1, xOutRg.Column)).Value = xRg.Cells(xLRow, 1).Value
Set xOutRg = xOutRg.Offset(RowOffset:=xObjRRg.count)
Next
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

First step itself fails =INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$16, MATCH(0, COUNTIF(\$D\$1:\$D1, \$A\$2:\$A\$16), 0)) gives Value Not Available error

This was fantastic. I had an excel with around 2000 unique values in row A and couldn't have managed this exercise without your help. Many many thanks.

How would I go in the opposite direction? From multiple columns into a single column? Thanks in advance! Tim
