    I am using the Stack Multiple Columns Into One With Formula method and it worked perfectly, but I want it to maintain the formatting, i.e. some columns were bold & 1 was hyperlinks. Is there something that can be added to the formula to make this happen?

      Hi, Susan Milard, their formula can meet your need, you can use the VBA or the Transpose Range tool,both of them can satisfy you.

    I am attempting to do this over a very large table (100s of columns and rows that are all linked to formulas. My excel will keep loading and then ultimately go to not responding. Is there a way to get past this? Thanks

    Hi, I'm looking to go a step further with this. I've used Stack Multiple Columns Into One With VBA, code and this works. I've used Tables as the source with this code and I get the list. Is there a way to automate running the Macro? So that when I add a new entry into the table the Macro automatically runs and keeps the resulting list up to date?

      Hi, Chris Blackburn, sorry I am affraid I cannot find a code can automatically run to update the result, maybe someone else can.

    Hi, is there a way to make the formula ignore any blank cells your data may contain?


    =INDEX(MyData,1+INT((ROW(A1)-1)/COLUMNS(MyData)),MOD(ROW(A1)-1+COLUMNS(MyData),COLUMNS(MyData))+1),


    I am using a helper sheet to create a contiguous list for a data validation drop down list. Thanks in advance.

      Sorry, I am not good at formula, maybe you can try to use Kutools for Excel's Select Nonblank cells utility to select the unempty cells firstly, and copy and paste them to another location, then use above methods.

    I have data which ends at the same row but multiple columns in which I want them to be stacked in a sequence where B column data will go under A column data where the data ends for A column and C column data to go under A column data where the data from B column ends and so on. This way I will have data from multiple columns to fit into one column. How can I do that?

    you are stacking multiple rows into one column, not multiple columns... not what I was looking for.

      To stack columns A-P that are in blocks of 6 rows put this formulae in cell R1 and fill down

      =OFFSET($A$1,MOD(ROW()-ROW($R$1),ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),TRUNC((ROW()-ROW($R$1))/ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),1,1)

        Cancel that last one, missed the truncate step.

        Dang, now it doesn’t work! Tried on a new tab but it’s now back to stacking column contents in one in stead of originally row content.

        Thank you for posting this solution! In case anyone needs a space after/at the end of each block, just add an additional count to the rows, so going by the example above, instead of $A$6, write $A$7. It inputs a zero ‘0’ to the row but you can easily ‘Use selection for Find’ in Sublime to edit them out. If you know the solution which doesn’t add a zero, please post!?

          to output a blank cell instead of 0, do an IF function>0, TRUE-->output the original cell content, FALSE-->output ""

          =if(OFFSET($A$1,MOD(ROW()-ROW($R$1),ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),TRUNC((ROW()-ROW($R$1))/ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),1,1)>0,OFFSET($A$1,MOD(ROW()-ROW($R$1),ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),TRUNC((ROW()-ROW($R$1))/ROWS($A$1:$A$6)),1,1),"")
