Vertical Slicers

2 dimensional slicers sort left to right, then next line, then left to right, etc.

Anyone know how to make it sort as shown below: vertically down, then a column over, then vertically down again, etc

I have created a lambda function for you that will satisfy your sorting request. But it uses some relatively new functions like BYROW() and MAKEARRAY(). I hope it works for you. In Excel for the Web it works in any case.

=LAMBDA(in,
LET(
r,ROWS(in),
c,COLUMNS(in),
ro,MOD(SEQUENCE(r*c,1,0),r)+1,
co,INT(SEQUENCE(r*c,1,0)/r)+1,
oc,BYROW(INDEX(in,ro,co),LAMBDA(ir,IF(ir="",UNICHAR(5000),ir))),
so,SORT(oc),
MAKEARRAY(r,c,LAMBDA(rl,cl,SUBSTITUTE(INDEX(so,rl+((cl-1)*r)),UNICHAR(5000),"")))))

 

Good luck.

 

PS: With VSTACK() and CHOOSECOLS() it is certainly even easier. However, these are currently only available to insiders.

Now is the time! TOCOL() and WRAPCOLS() have just been unlocked for me in Excel for the Web.

=WRAPCOLS(SORT(TOCOL(A1:C4,1)),ROWS(A1:C4),"")

 This is how simple the formula can look with the new possibilities.
