Yes the number of categories is always four but there could be any number of rows.

No need for a macro...you can do it with formula. Assuming your Product data begins in A2, put this in F2 and drag it down. This will repeat your Product numbers 4 times each.

=INDEX($A:$A,INT((ROW()-2)/4)+2,0)

Put this in G2 and drag it down. This will pick up each category (1 - 4) and place them next to the 4 product numbers.

=INDIRECT(CHAR(65+IF(MOD(ROW()-1,4)=0,4,MOD(ROW()-1,4)))&ROUNDUP((ROW()-1)/4,0)+1)

abc---cv--cat1 and so on..cat1,cat2,cat3,cat4 are column names and are always same.

If that's what you wanted, why didn't you ask for it? I gave you the framework for the solution. Study the formulas I've offered, figure out how they work, and adapt them for the added requirement.

I forget to mention that at that time.Actually i have not used such complex formulas in excel yet so i am not able to interpret them.Kindly send me the formula..and a big thanks for the help. :-)

Have you triedto interpret them?Why don't you use the Help files for the various nested functions and see if you can get a general idea of what the formulas do?

If you'll post back some words that show that you attempted to figure out the concept behind the formulas, I'll see what I can do about coming up with a formula for your added requirement.

For your latest request all that is required is a simplification of the 2nd formula so that it pulls data from Row 1 all the time.

It is only by studying the solutions that are offered will you increase your Excel knowledge. In fact, I did not know how to solve your problem until I did a Google search about copying and repeating data.

When I found a few suggestions, I studied how they worked and modified what I found to fit your specific situation. By studying what I have offered, you can do the same thing.
