Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2013-11-26

Normally you may have to use a VBA code or other Excel add-ins for doing so, because Excel doesn’t support such operation. And here comes the following tricky things will help you quickly flip or reverse a row of data order in Excel.

In response to Rodrigo, Fbkil:

The error occurs because when you cut and paste the macro text into the Excel VBA editor, there are non-printing characters hidden in the area where the macro rows are indented. Delete them and it will work.

Note: Solved by someone else, not me. Was tricky, as it looked like it should work, but didn't.

When I try to run this macro, I get the message "syntax error" with the command line "For j = 1 To UBound(Arr, 2) / 2" highlighted in red. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Great tool, thanks so much for VBA - I transposed a column to rows first and then used your VBA for reversing - saved tons of time!

You flipped the column order not the row order as per the title.

Copy paste (transpose) the row to column. Add 1 to x on the column beside. Filter from largest to smallest and expand. Then copy paste result and transpose to row again

A quicker way would be be to copy your selection. Right click, choose paste special. Check the transpose button, hit ok and the rows and columns will be transposed. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/switch-transpose-columns-and-rows-HP010224502.aspx
