Hello, I have a data set that lives in an application online and I cannot export. My only option is to copy and paste and as such it become about 3k lines that is show vertically pasted. (See attached) Anything I can do so that the date can be show horizontally so the Location 1 would be in row 1 with the subset of information associated with Location 1 be represented in subsequent columns and Location 2 would be in row 2 and so on. Thanks for the help. (note as I paste it looks like there is 2 rows in between each location along with check mark box.)

Hi Polska2180,

I don't know how to find a checkbox using a Function so can you give another reference. Is either:
Every entry is exactly 8 rows in that format?
or
Every entry has some fixed text such as "Modified by" starting the fifth row of every entry?

If I understand the question than, 1. I really don't care about the check box I will likely copy to a new sheet once I get the data horizontal. Otherwise it appears its always 8 lines first 6 have date the last 2 do not. I don't need the blank rows anywhere so they can be skipped if that helps.

If it's a fixed format then we just need each row to offset by 8 and each column to offset by 1.
