Excel: conversion of columns to rows

Hello together,

I have a question regarding the conversion of some columns from a Excel-file. (see attached an example-file).

My initial table is described at the tab ‘Initial’ and my prefered solution is available at the tab ‘Solution’.

In a nutshell: I have columns with quarterly costs and I want this quarters to be displayed within rows.

Does somebody know how to do this with KNIME?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Hi Andreas,
use unpivoting node, then split your column which contains the previous colomnheaders. Finaly use the pivoting node.



Hi Hermann,

thank you for your quick feedback.
I’ve tried your approach but I have some problems with the implementation.
I think the main problem is with the last step regarding the pivoting node.
I don’t get all data summarized into the two columns V01 and V21, just separated like in my input-table.

I’ve put my workflow to the attachment, may I ask you for a short check?

Best regards,
