How do I transpose information in a spreadsheet column to a row?

Spreadsheet data all entered in a single column, imported from a document. How do I make that information appear in separate columns on a single row? In other words, how do I transpose a column to a row?

  • Select your column of data and copy it;
  • right-click in the cell where you want to start the row;
  • select Paste Special > Paste Special... which should bring up this dialog:


  • make sure the [✓] Transpose check box is ticked under Options,
  • click OK.

Your column of data will now be a row.
