Use the Transpose Feature to Change the Orientation of Data Imported into Excel

I am working through the special requests that viewers have sent me. In this lesson, I show you how to:

  • Use Data – Get External Data – to import a simple delimited text file.
  • Use Copy – Paste Special – Transpose – to make a copy of the imported data that is now “vertically oriented.” i.e. The field entries run down the column rather than across the rows.
  • Use the Data – Text-to-Columns feature to break an “address block” (City, State, Zip Code) that is one cell into three distinct cells. This is a terrific time saver!
