Excel - moving columns


I need your help.

I presented the problem in the drawing. I need to put columns 1 and 2 under the data from column 0. I have no problem doing something like this but I don’t know how to automate Excel when I don’t know how many columns I will have.

Please help.

hi @Paulina,

What you are looking for is possible :slight_smile:

Please follow the following steps and let me know if you have any query in any of them:

  1. Read the whole table i.e. from column H to K
  2. You can check the count of column and put a for loop for that.
  3. Filter this data table, and keep the following columns
    Hardcode 1st column ie. 0
    and 2nd column will be the ( index counter + 1 )

This will save the column H and I, then H and J, then H and K and so on!!!

  1. Now merge the data table with property as ignore. This will be with the obtained DT from the filter DT.
  2. Now you can write this into an Excel.

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Do let me know in case of any query. Please mark this as solution if it has solved your query :slight_smile:
