I have 10 columns of data 50 rows down. I would like to merge the data to create one column of data 500 rows down. What's the best way to do this?
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

If you where not opposed to a quick VBA solution you could use the following code. It assumes that the first label "SITE" is in cell A1:
Sub sort_of_transposing_multiple_records()

Dim Current_cell As range

range("A1").EntireRow.Insert
range("A2:A10").Copy
range("A1").PasteSpecial Transpose:=True
range("A2").EntireRow.Insert

Set Current_cell = range("A2")

Do While (Current_cell(2, 1).Value <> "")
For lcv = 1 To 9
Current_cell(1, lcv).Value = Current_cell(2, 2).Value
Current_cell(2, 1).EntireRow.Delete
Next lcv
Set Current_cell = Current_cell(2, 1)
Loop

End Sub

Otherwise I would copy the column you want to transpose 9 times with spaces between the columns. Then auto fill numbers next to it so that each column has one catagory with increasing numbers next to it.

Column 1 would have a 1 next to the first site and a 2 next to the second site and so on. Column 2 would have a 1 next to the first Name and a 2 next to the second name and so on. Then I would sort each column by the numbers next to it and throw away anything below the numbers. After you delete the columns with numbers you will be left 9 columns, each representing one catagory and 700 rows.
