## Split Data in One Column to Multiple Columns

Assuming that you have 5 sets of product’s list in one column, and you would like to convert each set in its own column or split each sets into its own staked columns. How to achieve it.

If you want to split each sets in one column from row to row in stacked columns, and you need to create a formula based on the OFFSET function, the COLUMNS function, and the ROWS function.

Just like this:

`=OFFSET(\$A\$1,COLUMNS(\$A1:A1)-1+(ROWS(\$1:1)-1)*2,0)`

Type this formula into a blank cell C1, and press Enter key in your keyboard, and then drag the AutoFill Handle from C1 to D1. Select the Cell C1 and D1, then drag the AutoFill Handle in Cell D1 from D1 to D5.

If you want to split each sets in one column from one column into another column, you just need to use the following formula based on the INDEX function, the ROW function and the COLUMNS function. Like this:

`=INDEX(\$A\$1:\$A\$10,ROW(C1)+(2*(COLUMNS(\$C\$1:C\$1)-1)))`

Type this formula into the formula box of the Cell C1, and press Enter key in your keyboard, and drag the AutoFill Handle from C1 to C2. Select the Cell C1 and C2, and then drag the AutoFill handle in Cell C2 from C2 to G2.
