For example Row No. 2,3,4 have these cells

a2, b2, c2, d2,....
a3, b3, c3, d3,....
and so on
In one row there is any one single cell which have star "*" in it. How to pick these cells automatically and take to a column ?

Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Suppose destination column = Z and relevant columns are A-Y, enter in Z2 and copy down
Code:
=HLOOKUP("*~**",A2:Y2,1,0)
