Quickly generate/list all possible combinations of certain lists in Excel
Kutools for Excel
For example I need to list all possible combinations of three lists in ranges of A2:A6, B2:B8, and C2:C6 as following screen shot shown. There are 175 combinations with these three lists, and it will be quite time-consuming and error-prone to list all of them by my own. But Kutools for Excel’s List All Combinations utility can help us easily generate and list all possible combinations of given lists in a short time in Excel.

However, some combinations exceed the total number of rows excel can offer in a given column (1,048,576). Is it possible to let the list continue in another column within the same sheet? Or even have the tool in word or text which doesn't limit the rows? I appreciate your feedback!
