For example you need to copy a horizontal row and paste as a vertical column in Excel, how do you handle it? What if copying one row horizontally and pasting as multiple columns vertically or vice versa? And what if copying multiple rows horizontally and pasting as one column vertically or vice versa? Below methods will help you:


Copy a row horizontally and paste as a column vertically or vice versa

1. Select the row you will copy horizontally, right click and select the Copy from the right-clicking menu. See screenshot:

2. Select the first cell of destination column, right click and select the Transpose (T) in the Paste Options section of the right-clicking menu. See below screenshot:
