Great. The only thing is that Transpose doesn't appear in the menu unless you're copy/pasting from the same Excel instance, which I'm not doing. Workaround: Paste in the other instance, then copy from there and paste again. This time, the transpose option appears. – Serge Wautier Jun 22 '11 at 8:22
