This is very important to keep scientific way to prove that the transpose operation done is correct. In data analytics big excel sheets are handled and a small mistake can lead to big problems .. Please advise me ..

    SUBTOTAL – which I find is a powerful function, but often overlooked – particularly with the different function numbers that formula uses.

    Punnet thanks, May I suggest this, an average subscriber fairly uses excel and functions but in isolation. Every one knows match, offset etc what most need is the combination of these functions to generate more potent practical problem solving forces is the next step I will like you to do after these functions in isolation.

    • Puneet Gogia 10 Apr, 16 at 5:15 pm - Reply

      Yeah Iyek. I am trying to give two different examples. one is solo & other is combined with some other function.
