Hello, I have a measuring device on 4 x machines which measures run time in minutes and metres of material run through the machines.

The measuring device outputs the data into Excel but the format isn't great it displays as:

Date, Time, Machine 1, Runtime
Date, Time, Machine 1, Length
Date, time, Machine 2, Runtime
Date, Time, Machine 2, Length
etc.

Problem 1 - It doesn't always put the machine names in order, although always together.

It also has two sets of data for each machine per day - 06:00 and 18:00 as we run two shift.

I need to summaries the data as:

Date, 06:00, Machine 1, Runtime, Length - from this I'd also calculate up time / downtime based on 12 hours
Date, 18:00, Machine 1, Runtime, Length - from this I'd also calculate up time / downtime based on 12 hours

Date, 06:00, Machine 2, Runtime, Length - from this I'd also calculate up time / downtime based on 12 hours
Date, 018:00, Machine 2, Runtime, Length - from this I'd also calculate up time / downtime based on 12 hours

Where do I even start with this?
