I have a row of share prices that update from the internet.

Resolved Question:

I have a row of share prices that update from the internet. I want to transpose them into a column. I can do it in value form using the excel paste special transpose function but then they don't update in the column.

I can 'convert' the row of share prices into formulas by =cell in which the stock price is but then if I try to transpose my row of formulas, excel transposes by number i.e. A1,A2,A3 instead of A1,B1,C1....

What's the trick?

Yes. First I tried copying the row of stock prices and then paste special transpose into another worksheet-that works fine but I just get the values so each time the stock prices refresh I have to copy/transpose...

So, I figured let's 'convert' the share prices into formula by going =the cell in which the stock price result is.

A B C

My row is IBM GE BAC

117.16 14.50 17.02

 

I want:

IBM

GE

BAC

 

So I go in another worksheet =117.16 to 'convert' the 117.16 into a 'formula' and try copy paste special transpose and I get A1, A2, A3 instead of A1,B1,C1.......

No, with paste special you are just copying static values. With the transpose function however a link will be maintained between the copied cells and the transposed cells so that any change in the original cell will be reflected in the transpose cell. I can give you the steps for creating these formulas, or set it up for you on your own file. Let me know which one you prefer.
