Hi,

I have these columns with their respective values:

Category | ProductID
Apparel | UA-101
Apparel | UA-102
Apparel | LA-101
Apparel | LA-102
Sports | Ten-101
Sports | Ten-102
Sports | Gol-101
Baby | Toy-1
Baby | Toy-2

since UA-101, UA-102, LA-101, LA-102 fall on the same category which is Apparel, all of these relates to each other. The same with other products under Sports, Baby, etc.

I want to create a new columns, say on Column E and F the following:
Column E | Column F
UA-101 | UA-101
UA-101 | UA-102
UA-101 | LA-101
UA-101 | LA-102
UA-102 | UA-101
UA-102 | UA-102
UA-102 | LA-101
UA-102 | LA-102
LA-101 | UA-101
LA-101 | UA-102
LA-101 | LA-101
LA-101 | LA-102
LA-102 | UA-101
LA-102 | UA-102
LA-102 | LA-101
LA-102 | LA-102

and so on. I hope I made myself clear with the above given data. Please help me solve this thing. It's prone to error doing the copy-and-paste. Thanks much.
