Excel: Transpose data from rows to columns or vice versa


  1. Select the range of data you want to rearrange, including any row or column labels, and press Ctrl+C.

    Note: Ensure that you copy the data to do this, since using the Cut command or Ctrl+X won’t work.

  2. Choose a new location in the worksheet where you want to paste the transposed table, ensuring that there is plenty of room to paste your data. The new table that you paste there will entirely overwrite any data / formatting that’s already there.

    Right-click over the top-left cell of where you want to paste the transposed table, then choose Transpose Tranpose button image.

    Paste Options menu

  3. After rotating the data successfully, you can delete the original table and the data in the new table will remain intact.
