Hi,

I want to use a formula, or set of formulas, for selecting values from a data table were the number of values differ between rows (see attachment). I do not want to cut and paste or use any commands as I need to make this a executable function.

For instance, 9 rows and 21 cols (as in attachment), in the first row i have 21 values, in the 2nd only 4 and in the 3rd I have 5 etc. I want to "merge" these values in order in a single row, i.e. from B2 to V2 (in this case) and then continue with B3 to E3, and B4 to F4 etc, all in a single new row.

So in the table I have a total of 103 values in 9 rows, i want to sort them in a single row, i.e. from e.g. B15 to CZ15 (I think it will be CZ).

Height of cross section BC D E F ... .. .
00,050,090,140,180,230,270,320,360,410,450,500,550,590,640,680,730,770,820,860,911,00
11,251,501,752,00
22,202,402,602,803,00
33,173,333,503,673,834,00
44,134,254,384,504,634,754,885,00
55,115,225,335,445,565,675,785,896,00
66,076,146,216,296,366,436,506,576,646,716,796,866,937,00
77,107,207,307,407,507,607,707,807,908,00
88,078,148,218,298,368,438,508,578,648,718,798,868,939,00
99,169,339,499,659,829,9810,1510,3110,4710,6410,80

Excel Facts

Create a Pivot Table on a Map
If your data has zip codes, postal codes, or city names, select the data and use Insert, 3D Map. (Found to right of chart icons).
English is not my first language so i might not have explained it very well. I have added a smaller sample of my data with the desired result and the result from the original StringConcat.

Height
00,050,090,140,180,230,270,320,360,410,450,500,550,590,640,680,730,770,820,860,911,00
11,251,501,752,00
22,202,402,602,803,00

<tbody>
</tbody>

So what i want to do is to put the values from all rows in one single row like this:


(from row 2)(From row 3)(From row 4)
Desired result ->0,050,090,140,180,230,270,320,360,410,450,500,550,590,640,680,730,770,820,860,911,001,251,501,752,002,202,402,602,803,00

<tbody>
</tbody>


with one cell for each value.

When I use the "=StringConcat("|";B2:W4)" all values are merged in one cell.

Using UDF StringConcat ->0,045455|0,090909|0,136364|0,181818|0,227273|0,272727|0,318182|0,363636|0,409091|0,454545|0,5|0,545455|0,590909|0,636364|0,681818|0,727273|0,772727|0,818182|0,863636|0,909091|1|1,25|1,5|1,75|2|2,2|2,4|2,6|2,8|3

<tbody>
</tbody>

I could use copy and paste special (values) to put the information from StringConcat in a new cell and then use the command text to columns to separate the values in to separate cells for each value, however, I want to use a function(s) instead of commands as I need to make this an executable function.

Cheers!
