Hi All,

I'm not quite sure what to call the following type of data manipulation so I don't quite know how to phrase my question.

Below is an example of my source data

123412/12/2021 06:30chicken
444412/12/2021 06:30lamp
32112/12/2021 06:30oak
123412/12/2021 07:30blimp attack
123413/12/2021 08:30extended warranty
….….….


A:A contains part IDs (which may/will repeat). B:B contains a date and time (will always be a 15 minute chunk e.g. 06:30,06:45,07:00) associated with a sale period for the ID in A (so 6:30 may appear a few times for different IDs - but IDs will *never* appear more than once for the same time period) this column has been sorted so the earliest date/time will always be first. C:C contains data associated with the ID and Time in A and B

Below is how I wish the data to be presented - A has been transposed and filtered (unique IDs - no repeats) B is a list of date times starting at 12/12/2021 06:30 (the first time and increasing by 15 minute intervals. I have already sorted this part out which works perfectly as I want it. What I don't know how to do is get those associated bits of Data in C:C to appear in the relevant cells.

I should specify I'm using VBA rather than formula for this as the data set is quite large (though not in the example of course), so I'm after a VBA solution :)

Thanks for any help!

Is there data in source column C for all rows? Which would mean that every row in the new data format will have minimum 1 "C-data", yes?

Yes :) C will always have an entry of some sort usually a number but could also be string - blanks have been entire.row removed as part of the pre-existing preparation I have done :)

This is a formula and not per your request a VBA solution.
You might be simply able to convert this to VBA if this isn't OK. I ran it with 3000+ rows in the result sheet and it was instantaneous.

Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
B1:D1B1=TRANSPOSE(UNIQUE(Source!A1:A5))
B2:D9B2=FILTER(Source!$C$1:$C$5,($A2=Source!$B$1:$B$5)*(Source!$A$1:$A$5=B$1),"")
A2A2=Source!B1
A3:A6,A8A3=A2+15/1440
Dynamic array formulas.

If you want a pure VBA solution, here's one that I think works now.
You need:
  • Two sheets. The first sheet contains your data with the original formatting, "pasted at" A1. The second sheet contains your part ID:s and date/times formatted as in your image.
sheet 1
sheet 2


Running the script below will populate sheet 2 with the "C-data" from sheet 1.

VBA Code:
Sub orderData()

    Dim oldCoords As Collection
    Dim newCoords As Collection
    Set oldCoords = New Collection
    Set newCoords = New Collection
    
    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
    lastRow = .Range("B" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    
    For r = 1 To lastRow
        oldCoords.Add Array(.Cells(r, "A"), .Cells(r, "B"))
    Next
    End With
    
    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(2)
    lastCol = .Cells(1, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    For Each Item In oldCoords
        vArr = Split(Cells(1, lastCol).Address(True, False), "$")
        col_letter = vArr(0)
        Dim item_id As Range
        Set item_id = .Range("A1:" & col_letter & lastRow).Find(Item(0))  'Find first element in oldCoords, which is part ID
      
        Dim time As Range
        Set time = .Range("A1:A" & lastRow).Find(Item(1)) 'Find second element in oldCoords, which is the timestamp
        
        newCoords.Add Array(item_id.Column, time.Row)
    Next
    End With
    
    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
    i = 1
    For Each Item In newCoords 'For each pair of new coordinates, "copy" C-data from old format to new format
        vArr = Split(Cells(1, Item(0)).Address(True, False), "$")
        col_letter = vArr(0)
        ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(2).Range(vArr(0) & Item(1)) = .Range("C" & i)
        i = i + 1
    Next

    End With

End Sub

Let me know how it runs :)

An alternative is to use power query.

Power Query:
let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Table1"]}[Content],
    #"Pivoted Column" = Table.Pivot(Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source, {{"Column1", type text}}, "en-US"), List.Distinct(Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source, {{"Column1", type text}}, "en-US")[Column1]), "Column1", "Column3")
in
    #"Pivoted Column"

Thanks for the responses everyone!

I'm reviewing the options you've all provided to see which works for me best :)

I'll report back on which I go with/any issues I run into :)

    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
    lastRow = .Range("B" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
   
    For r = 1 To lastRow
        oldCoords.Add Array(.Cells(r, "A"), .Cells(r, "B"))
    Next
    End With
   
    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(2)
    lastCol = .Cells(1, .Columns.Count).End(xlToLeft).Column
    For Each Item In oldCoords
        vArr = Split(Cells(1, lastCol).Address(True, False), "$")
        col_letter = vArr(0)
        Dim item_id As Range
        Set item_id = .Range("A1:" & col_letter & lastRow).Find(Item(0))  'Find first element in oldCoords, which is part ID
     
        Dim time As Range
        Set time = .Range("A1:A" & lastRow).Find(Item(1)) 'Find second element in oldCoords, which is the timestamp
       
        newCoords.Add Array(item_id.Column, time.Row)
    Next
    End With
   
    With ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(1)
    i = 1
    For Each Item In newCoords 'For each pair of new coordinates, "copy" C-data from old format to new format
        vArr = Split(Cells(1, Item(0)).Address(True, False), "$")
        col_letter = vArr(0)
        ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(2).Range(vArr(0) & Item(1)) = .Range("C" & i)
        i = i + 1
    Next

    End With

End Sub

Let me know how it runs :)
Hi!

Thank you for the help!

I'm currently getting "run time error 91 object variable or with block variable not set" for the line

VBA Code:
newCoords.Add Array(item_id.Column, time.Row)

specifically "time.row"
