    If A1:D3 contains...

    {"Title1","Author1","Cost1","ISBN1"
    ;"Title2","Author2","Cost2","ISBN2"
    ;"Title3","Author3","Cost3","ISBN3"}

    Select cells A5:C8 and enter the array formula...

    {=TRANSPOSE(A1:D3)}

    ...to produce...

    {"Title1","Title2","Title3"
    ;"Author1","Author2","Author3"
    ;"Cost1","Cost2","Cost3"
    ;"ISBN1","ISBN2","ISBN3"}

    Note: Array formulas must be entered using the Control+Shift+Enter key combination. The outermost braces, { }, are not entered by you -- they're supplied by Excel in recognition of a properly entered array formula.

    Thanks Mark W.,
    I'm new to excel and am learning to sort and format files I dumped from a dos based database. A couple of things I think I should be able to do:
    - Pull out various abbreviations from title and author fields and place in a separate col (Did sort for various different codes, each with its own col and left the abbreviations in the original field).
    -Make the data that's interesting to various clients look pretty / presentation.
    I intend latter to learn about Access, transfer my excel work to Access and then use Access to go Web.
    What are the features of excel I should learn first and can you recommend some tutorials ("smart people" resources)?
