I have a csv with columns that include a ‘yes’ or
null value. I would like to replace each ‘yes’ with the name of it’s column header. I know I could go through each column and F&R, but there’s about 40 columns and there will be changes in the future. I would like to streamline it with a formula, but I have no idea how to F&R with a formula.
I have this:
service_1 | service_2 | service_3 yes | yes | yes | yes | yes
I’m looking for this:
service_1 | service_2 | service_3 service_1 | service_2 | service_3 | service_2 | service_3
Thanks for any help!
If ‘service_1’ is in cell A1 and ‘yes’ is in cell A2, you can paste this formula in D2 and copy paste across and down to F3. Copy your headers from A1:C1 to D1:F1 to complete your example.
Note the absolute reference to the first row headers, A$1.
Don’t forget to copy your new data and paste the values if you want to get rid of your original three columns (in your example).
