#### Create rows from a lookup

```Hi all,
I have 2 worksheets containing data that I need to combine, by creating rows
WS1 has product data in the range of:
Product_ID     Name       price         Options_Ref
1                  Product 1    10.00       18
2                  Product 2    15.00       25
3                  Product 3    5.00         18
4                  Product 4    20.00       7

WS2 has the option list data such as:
Options_Ref       Option_Description
7                       Red
7                       Blue
18                     12"
18                     14"
18                     16"
25                     White
25                     Black
25                     Grey
25                     Cream
25                     Red

What I need is to create a new worksheet that will create rows for each
option, by looking up the data. Some products use the same options so would
need to lookup,so for example:
Product_ID     Name       price         Options_Ref       Option_Description
1                  Product 1    10.00       18                     12"
1                  Product 1    10.00       18                     14"
1                  Product 1    10.00       18                     16"
2                  Product 2    15.00       25                     White
2                  Product 2    15.00       25                     Black
2                  Product 2    15.00       25                     Grey
2                  Product 2    15.00       25                     Cream
2                  Product 2    15.00       25                     Red
3                  Product 3    5.00       18                     12"
3                  Product 3    5.00       18                     14"
3                  Product 3    5.00       18                     16"

I hope I have explained my needs OK, hope somebody can help me

```This procedure repeats a row a given, variable amount of times,
using reverse Pivot Table.
Assume your data and headers are arranged like this, starting at A1

Prod_ID  Prod_NM  Price  Opt_Ref  Prod_ID2
1  Prod1  10  18  1  0  0  12"  14"  16"  0  0  0  0  0
2  Prod2  15  25  2  0  0  0  0  0  Wt  Blk  Gry  Crm  Red
3  Prod3  5  18  3  0  0  12"  14"  16"  0  0  0  0  0
4  Prod4  20  7  4  Rd  Bu  0  0  0  0  0  0  0  0

Opt_ref2  Opt_des2
7		Rd
7		Bu
18		12"
18		14"
18		16"
25		Wt
25		Blk
25		Gry
25		Crm
25		Red

Notice that column E is a repeat of A.
In F2:O2 enter this array formula:
=TRANSPOSE(IF(Opt_ref2=D2,Opt_des2,0))
and fill down.
Use reverse Pivot Table on E1:O5. See:
http://j-walk.com/ss/excel/usertips/tip068.htm
In the resulting Row/Column/Value table, insert 2 more blank Columns
and delete zeros with
Edit > Go To > Special > Constants > Numbers
(or Logicals if ,0 is omitted in the above formula)
Delete > Shift up > Entire Row
Fill the first row of the 3 blank columns with this array formula
with this format:
=VLOOKUP(......,A2:D5,{2,3,4})
and fill down.

```

```Many thanks for your reply Herbert.
I have been trying your suggestion & have been unable to get it working.
I am having trouble with the IF statement in the TRANSPOSE formula.
In your reply you have referred to Opt_ref2 & Opt_des2, I know what these
are referring to but in excel do I need to declare the cell range inplace of
these ie A1:A7 etc or are they variable that the data range needs declaring
in?

Many thanks
Richard

```In my example Opt_ref2 and Opt_des2 are the arbitrary names
for the ranges A7:A16 and B7:B16
So if you did not name these ranges with
Insert > Name > Create > Top Row
then you could have written the formula this way:
=TRANSPOSE(IF(\$A\$7:\$A\$16=D2,\$B\$7:\$B\$16,0))
To me, the first way is easier to read, is independent of
the data location you chose and you don't have to worry
Select F2:O2 (10 cells, the number of cells in Opt_ref2),
type the formula and hit Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of just Enter.
Experiment with my setup before you tackle yours.
