ok i asked a similar question about an hour ago, but this is where it gets really complicated...

again, i cant fully explain it in words, but here is a picture...

the idea is that column A will be filled with a list of 10,000+ entries. basically, everything in that list needs to be organized with the system expressed in the picture (5 per row going down).

i dont think a simple formula will cut it but a macro possibly will. unfortunately i have 0 experience in that area. plz help me out.

i really appreciate it, thank you.

You're right, that's not going to be easy in a formula...
Here's a macro

Code:
``````Sub test()

LR = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
y = 3
z = 1
For i = 1 To LR
Cells(z, y).Value = Cells(i, "A").Value
y = y + 1
If y = 8 Then
y = 3
z = z + 1
End If
Next i

End Sub``````
