I would like to take the following information:
|Header 1||Header 2||Header 3|
And transform it into the following:
*Updated 6-May-2021 - Original post unable to process merged cells. Removed original content and replaced with image of desired output.
Thank you for your insight!
Hi @Madison Small ,
The Table Transformer macro sees the source table as a mini SQL database, so it can merge cells into one big cell by joining their contents. If we leave a border, then they will be counted as two separate cells and you won't get an aggregated table at all.
Maybe it will be easier to read your table when using ", " instead of the "\n": you'll get "Apple, Apricot" as a result.
Maybe this is not as similar as I thought. So I would like to keep the formatting of my result table which would be a vertical header column with the data in a column to the right of the headers. I am merging 4 tables together and need to get just the column that contains labels to merge together. Unfortunately, the pivot table manipulates the result table too much and also does a lot of header renaming.
header 1 | data
header 2 | Label1, label2, label 3, etc (These can be on newlines too)
header 1 | header 2
Data. label 1, label 2
header 1 | header 2
Data. label, 2, label 3
If you merge labels into one cell, then the Table Transformer macro may lose the original formatting because it is a new cell with simple text strings for it.
