It's simple:

  1. Hold the Alt key and select the B lines as columns
  2. Cut or Copy the selection (Ctrl-x or Ctrl-c)
  3. Hold Alt and select the column to the right of the As
  4. Paste (Ctrl-v)

It didn't work pressing ctrl+c, but then I hovered over Edit , over paste option and it worked –  Theta30 May 6 '13 at 19:11
    
@Theta30 What are you talking about? You cannot hover over anything when you hold the Alt pressed! –  Val Oct 9 '13 at 11:48
    
@Val you can hover if you keep on your finger over the left click-works better with a mouse –  Theta30 Oct 10 '13 at 2:57
