Transposing a data table is basically rotating your data from rows to columnsor from columns to rows. To further explain this concept, screenshots are provided below.



Let’s go through the steps in detail:

STEP 1: Select your data and turn it into an Excel Table by pressing the shortcut Ctrl + T or by going to Insert > Table

Transpose 01


STEP 2: Go to Data > Get & Transform > From Table (Excel 2016) or Power Query > Excel Data > From Table (Excel 2013 & 2010)

Excel 2016:

 Transpose 02

Excel 2013 & 2010:
