How to copy column into row (transpose)

I’m looking for a way to do the following;

  1. Copy specific range of column (G5:G61) from Excel file “1”
  2. Paste it to specific range of row (A6:AS6) in Excel file “2”

Update small change: This is non programmatic approach. Open excel scope, follow below hot key pattern

  1. F5 (src start range)
  2. f5( src end range)
  3. Shift + enter(will select range)
  4. ctrl+c( copy src range)
    Alt+f4(close excel1)
    Open excel2
    5)f5(dest start range)
  5. Alt+Ctrl+V (opens pop up)
  6. E (select transpose)
  7. Enter
    9)ctrl+s (save excel)

I am sorry but I am unable to follow this approach.Could you please attach a template xaml file. Would be of great help.

Hi @Yama,

Instead of copy/paste you can go for another approach,
Use Read range activity to get the data
use write range activity to write the data.


Ignore the logic, use this.This is for complete excel transpose.

How do I add the ID column and Merge the two cells to write the “Name”

Please help me in transpose the particular columns to rows.

But could you please take a closer look at the output pattern we require. There is repetitive entry based on the SA month, we want the output in such away.

This worked perfectly for me but I have a second part question for this. I have multiple data tables that I am looking to transpose into one sheet as 1 column…do you have any suggestions to make this 1 merged data table from multiple data tables then transpose it?
