## Extract or Filter Every Nth Row

Assume that you’re in a situation where you need to filter every nth row from a list having a few values. I’m pretty sure you’d choose to do it manually, which is also a great choice when you only have a few values in a list and want to filter out every nth row.

However, if you are dealing with several values in the list and want to filter out the nth row, then executing these jobs manually would be a stupid move since there is a 90% probability that you will become tired of it and will be unable to accomplish your assignment on time.

But don’t worry, after carefully reading this post, filtering off every nth row from a list with multiple values will be a piece of cake for you. So let’s go into the article and get you out of this bind.

## The formula in General

In MS Excel, use the following formula to filter every nth row:

`=FILTER(total_data,MOD(SEQUENCE(ROWS(total_data)),n)=0)`

## Explanations of Syntax

Before we get into the formula for getting the job done quickly, we need to grasp each syntax to see how each syntax helps filter out every nth row in MS Excel.

•  `Filter`: This tool helps narrow down or filter out a range of data based on user-defined criteria.
•  `Comma symbol (,)`: In Excel, this comma symbol serves as a separator, aiding in separating a list of values.
• `total_data`: is nothing more than representing each column in the list.
• `Parenthesis` (): The primary function of this Parenthesis symbol is to group and separate elements.
• `ROWS`: This refers to the nth row you want to filter out.
• ` MOD()`: The MOD function accepts two real number operands as inputs and returns the remainder of dividing the integer component of the first parameter (the dividend) by the integer part of the second argument (the divisor)
• `SEQUENCE()`: The SEQUENCE function in Excel lets you create a sequence of consecutive numbers in an array, such as 1, 2, 3, 4.

## Let’s See How This Formula Works

For example, suppose you have a task in which there is a table with candidates from two regions (i.e., West and East ) and which are assigned to a particular sales number; now you want to filter out every second row, which is the sequence which we would write in the formula; now let’s analyze how to write the formula and how this formula would do it.

To filter every second row, we would use the following formula based on the supplied list:

`=FILTER(A2:C10,MOD(SEQUENCE(ROWS(A2:C10)),2)=0)` To filter and extract every nth row, use a formula that combines the FILTER function with `MOD`, `ROW`, and `SEQUENCE`. Where data refers to the designated range A2:C10. With n hardcoded as `2`, the FILTER function retrieves every third row in the data.

The FILTER function filters and extracts data based on logical criteria. This example aims to extract every second record from the supplied data, although there is no row number information in the data range A2:C10.

The first stage, working from the inside out, is establishing a row number set. This is accomplished using the SEQUENCE function as follows:

`=SEQUENCE(ROWS(A2:C10))`

The ROW function returns the number of rows in the specified range of data. SEQUENCE provides an array of 9 integers in sequence based on the number of rows:

`{1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9}` This array is sent straight to the MOD function as the number parameter, with the divisor hardcoded as 2. MOD is configured to check if row numbers are divisible by 2 with a remainder of zero.

`=MOD(SEQUENCE(ROWS(A2:C10)),2)=0 /// is it divisible by 2?`

MOD produces an array of TRUE and FALSE values, as shown below:

`{FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE;TRUE;FALSE}` Take note that TRUE values correlate to every second row in the data range A2:C10. This array is passed straight to the FILTER function as the include parameter. As a final result, FILTER returns every second row of data.

## How to Convert Horizontal List of Data into Vertical in Excel

This post will guide you how to transpose horizontal list to vertical list in your current worksheet in Excel. How do I convert horizontal rows to vertical columns with a formula in Excel 2013/2016.

Assuming that you have a list of data (A1:E1) in a Microsoft Excel worksheet, and you want to realize that the data you entered in rows makes better sense in columns or vice versa. You need to transpose your rows and columns from horizontal list to vertical list. This post will show you two methods to change the horizontal row style to vertical style.

## Convert Horizontal List to Vertical with a Formula

If you want to convert horizontal list to a vertical list, you can create a formula based on the INDEX function in combination with ROWS function. Like this:

`=INDEX(A\$1:E\$1, ROWS(F\$1:F1))`

Then enter this formula into a blank cell such as: Cell F1, and then press Enter key on your keyboard, and the drag the AutoFill Handle down to other cells, until you get a #REF! error message.

Note: Cell A1:E1 is your horizontal list, and F1 is the first cell that you want to place vertical list. It is also the cell that you want to apply for the formula. You would see that the horizontal list has been converted to vertical list.

## Convert Horizontal List to Vertical using Paste Special Feature

You can also use Paste Special function to achieve the same result of transposing horizontal row data into vertical column style in Excel. Just do the following steps:

Step1: select cells that you want to convert, such as: A1:E1. Step2: right click on the selected cells, and select Copy option from the popup context menu. Step3: select a blank cell that you want to place vertical list, such as: Cell F1. And right click on it , and choose Paste Special from the popup menu list. Then the Paste Special dialog will open. Step4: check the Transpose box in the Paste Special dialog box. Then click Ok button. Step5: you would now see your horizontal data be transposed to vertical style. ### Related Functions

## How to Reverse a List or Range

This post will guide you how to reverse a list of values or a range of values in excel. How to reverse the order of a column data or a list of items using excel formula. How to reverse a range with sort command. How to reverse a list or column value with VBA.

## Reverse a List or Range with Formula

If you want to reverse a list or range, you can use a combination of the INDEX function, the COUNTA function, the ROW function or ROWS function to create a new formula.

For example, to reverse the range A2:A5, you can use the following formula:

`=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$5,COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5)-ROWS(\$C\$2:C2)+1)`

Let’s see how the above formulas works:

= COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5) The COUNTA function returns the number of cells in the range A2:A5.  The above COUNTA formula used the absolute reference as its arguments, so it won’t be changed when dragging Fill handle to other single cell.

=ROWS(\$C\$2:C2) The ROWS function returns the number of rows in the range \$C\$2:C2. The first Cell is an absolute reference and the second Cell is a relative reference in the argument of the ROWS function. So the second Cell reference can be changed when dragging the Fill handle.

= COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5)-ROWS(\$C\$2:C2)+1 The number of Cells in the range (\$A\$2:\$A\$5 subtracted the number of rows in the range \$C\$2:C2, then add 1, it returns the position of the last value in the range A2:A5. And it returns 4.

=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$5,COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5)-ROWS(\$C\$2:C2)+1) We can use the INDEX function to extract the value based on the position result returned by the above COUNTA-ROWS formula.  So it returns value 403.

Next, we just need to drag the Fill Handler in Cell C1 to other single cells, such as: C2,C3,C4… You can also use the below two excel formula to reverse a list or a range:

=INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$5,ROWS(C2:C\$5)) =INDEX(\$A\$2:\$A\$5, COUNTA(\$A\$2:\$A\$5) + ROW(\$A\$2:\$A\$5)-ROW(),1) ## Reverse a List or Range with Sort command

You can also use the Sort command to reverse a list or a range in excel, for example, if you want to reverse the values in the range A2:A5, just refer to the following steps:

1# enter the value 1 into the cell B2, and then fill cells to B5 with a series by using the fill handle. 2# click any cell in the range B2:B5

3# click “Sort Z to A”command under Data tab. 4# delete the Column B, you will see that the range A2:A5 is reversed. ## Reverse a List or Range with VBA

You can follow the below steps to create a new excel macro to reverse a list or range in Excel VBA:

1# click on “Visual Basic” command under DEVELOPER Tab. 2# then the “Visual Basic Editor” window will appear.

3#click “Insert” ->”Module” to create a new module. 4# paste the below VBA code into the code window. Then clicking “Save” button. ```Sub ReverseRange()
Dim Rng As Range
Dim WorkRng As Range
Dim Arr As Variant
Dim i As Integer, j As Integer, k As Integer
On Error Resume Next
xTitleId = "ReverseColumnValue"
Set WorkRng = Application.Selection
Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("Range", xTitleId, WorkRng.Address, Type:=8)
Arr = WorkRng.Formula
For j = 1 To UBound(Arr, 2)
k = UBound(Arr, 1)
For i = 1 To UBound(Arr, 1) / 2
xTemp = Arr(i, j)
Arr(i, j) = Arr(k, j)
Arr(k, j) = xTemp
k = k - 1
Next
Next
WorkRng.Formula = Arr
End Sub```

5# back to the current workbook, then click Macros button under DEVELOPER tab, or Press F5 key to run the above macro. 6# click “RUN” button, then input the range value A2:A5 that you want to reverse. 7# let’s see that last result. ### Related Formulas

If you want to fetch all matches from a range then put it into cells in different columns, you can use a combination with the INDEX function, the SMALL function, the IF function,  the ROW function and the COLUMNS function to create a new excel formula.

For example, if you want to get all member names belong to “excel” team in the range B3:D7, then separate it into the different columns, such as: E2, F2…you can use the following formula:

`=IFERROR(INDEX(\$D\$3:\$D\$7,SMALL(IF(\$C\$3:\$C\$7="excel",ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1),COLUMNS(\$E\$2:E2))),"")`

Let’s see how the above formula works:

= ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1

The ROW function returns the relative position of all rows in the range C3:C7.  The returned result is another array. = IF(\$C\$3:\$C\$7=”excel”,ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1)

The IF function will check if each value in range C3:C7 is equal to “excel”, if TRUE, returns its relative position, otherwise, returns FALSE. As this formula is an array formula, so it must be returned an array result. =COLUMNS(\$E\$2:E2)

The COLUMNS function returns a numeric values, it will be used by the SMALL function as its nth argument to indicate the position of the number that you want to return.

=SMALL(IF(\$C\$3:\$C\$7=”excel”,ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1),COLUMNS(\$E\$2:E2))

The SMALL function returns the position of the nth smallest values from the numbers in an array result returned by the above IF function. The nth argument is specified by the result returned by the COLUMNS function. =INDEX(\$D\$3:\$D\$7,SMALL(IF(\$C\$3:\$C\$7=”excel”,ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1),COLUMNS(\$E\$2:E2)))

The INDEX function returns a value at a position returned by the above SMALL function in the range D3:D7, so it should be the first matches of the member name that belong to the excel team in the range B3:D7. And if you want to get the second matches into Cell F2, you just need to drag the fill hander in the Cell E2 to F2, then the second matches of the member name will be fetched in the Cell F2. =IFERROR()

The IFERROR function will check if the result returned by the SMALL function is a #NUM error, then returns an empty string.

## Extract multiple match values into separate rows

If you want to extract multiple matches into the separate rows in excel, just need to use ROWS instead of the COLUMNS function in the above formula as follows:

`=IFERROR(INDEX(\$D\$3:\$D\$7,SMALL(IF(\$C\$3:\$C\$7="excel",ROW(\$C\$3:\$C\$7)-ROW(INDEX(\$C\$3:\$C\$7,1,1))+1), ROWS(\$E\$2:E2))),"")` If you want to extract the second matches, then put the result into the cell E3, you just need to drag the Fill Handler in Cell E2 to E3. The second matches of the member name should be fetched in the Cell E3.

## Three Ways to Get the Last Row Number in a Range

This post explains that how to get the last row number in a range or a table in excel. Sometimes, you want to know the last row number for a excel range. The below will guide you how to get the last row number in range using excel formula through the following three ways:

## Get the Last Row Number using ROW and ROWS Functions

If you want to get the last row number in a range, you need to know the first row number and the total rows number of a range, then perform the addition operation, then subtract 1, the last result is the last row number for that range.

We have talked that how to get the first row number in the previous post. And how to get the total row numbers in a range? And you can use the ROWS function. So we can write down the following formula to get the last row number in a range (assuming that B3:D6):

`=ROW(B3:D6) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1` The above ROW function returns the first row number in range B3:D6.

=ROWS(B3:D6) The ROWS function returns the total number of rows in range B3:D6.

## Get the Last Row Number using MIN, ROW and ROWS Functions

To get the first row number, you can also use the ROW function within MIN Function as follows:

`=MIN(ROW(B3:D6))` So we can use the above formula to create a new formula to get the last row number in a range as follows:

`=MIN(ROW(B3:D6)) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1` ## Get the Last Row Number using ROW, INDEX and ROWS Functions

As I said in the previous post, we can use the INDEX function in combination with ROW function to get the first row number in a range. So we can write down another different formula to find the last row number in a range, such as: B3:D6.

`=ROW(INDEX(B3:D6,1,1)) + ROWS(B3:D6)-1` ### Related Formulas
