# Transpose Row to Row with Columns

I would like to transpose or pivot some data that has ID column and with 2 extra columns that serve as Field and the other one as Value column.

I tried to pivot but I get stuck on the "Data Fields" section of the pivot table layout screen. Also tried transpose but that gave the wrong results.

Current data What I want to achieve as the end result edit retag close merge delete

Gregors15 idea of the extra column really solved my problem I was having, so all the credit should go to Gregors15.

By adding a unique value to each row using the ID and Field column you can perform a lookup of the Value using a formula that uses INDEX and MATCH.

Step 1

Create a new column called "ROW_NAME" that joins the ID and Field column using the following formula

=CONCATENATE(A2,"-",B2) Step 2

Rename current sheet "before"

Step 3

Create a new sheet called "after" with distinct list of the ID column. Use the filter located in the menu "Data>More Filters>Standard Filter" (see the screenshot below how to configure the dialog box) Step 4

Capture the columns names you want starting at B1 on the "after" sheet Step 5

Enter the following formula at B2 on the "after" sheet

=INDEX($before.$C$2:$C$5000,MATCH(CONCATENATE($A2,"-",B$1),$before.$D$2:$D$5000,0),0)

The formula works as follows it calculates the "ROW_NAME" value using the CONCATENATE($A2,"-",B$1) then it searches for it the range "$before.$D$2:$D$5000" and then the INDEX function returns the Value contained in the range "$before.$C$2:$C$5000" that is located at a row that the MATCH function found.

Step 6

Drag the cell to fill the sheet with calculation needed for each cell.

Hi, I have added a column (D) to your example, and created a pivot table, columns E,F and G should be what your looking for.C:\fakepath\TransposeRow_20190408.ods Regards.
