    Hi,

    Thanks a lot! I'm using your following function and it works very well. I would like to include an "if" function in the transposerange. What should I add to the function in VBA? Basically, it would work like a countif. So we would read the formula =transposerangeif(range,criteria).

    Thanks in advance!

    Function transposeRange(Rg As Range)
    'updateby Extendoffice 20151207
    Dim xCell As Range
    Dim xStr As String
    For Each xCell In Rg
    If Not IsEmpty(xCell.Value) Then
    xStr = xStr & xCell.Value & ","
    End If
    Next
    transposeRange = Left(xStr, Len(xStr) - 1)
    End Function
