Default Snaking columns in Excel

I wish to prepare a book inventory. Column A is the book title, Column B is
the author. I will sort alphabetically by column B (author), then
alphabetically by column A (books will be in alphabetical order for that
author). I wish to have a total of four columns on each page, so will add
Columns C and D. I want the first two columns to SNAKE to the third and
fourth columns. Then, continue in that same format to page 2. Can you help?

Default Snaking columns in Excel

After sorting the columns as you like.....................

Sub Move_Sets()
Dim iSource As Long
Dim iTarget As Long

iSource = 1
iTarget = 1

Do
Cells(iSource, "A").Resize(50, 2).Cut _
Destination:=Cells(iTarget, "A")
Cells(iSource + 50, "A").Resize(50, 2).Cut _
Destination:=Cells(iTarget, "C")

iSource = iSource + 100
iTarget = iTarget + 51
Loop Until IsEmpty(Cells(iSource, "A").Value)

End Sub

Default Snaking columns in Excel

Gord,

Your macro for snaking columns works great. However, I need the column
headers in A1 & B1 repeated to C1 & D1 and throughout the spreadsheet.

Also have a different 2 column I need to snake to 8 columns (4 sets) in the
same manner. Each page is 54 rows at the page break.

Thanks, Kevin

Default code

Before or after?

To not have a blank row inserted change this line

iTarget = iTarget + 55 'insert a blank row

iTarget = iTarget + 54

If you have already run the macro and have the blank lines...........

Select a column then F5SpecialBlanksOKEditDeleteEntire row.

This solution is fabulous. I changed a couple of things to make it 4 column for 7,300 rows and removed the blank row. Absolutely brilliant.
Ian

viz:
Sub Move_Sets()
Dim iSource As Long
Dim iTarget As Long
iSource = 2
iTarget = 2
Range("A11").Copy Range("E1:H1")
Do
Cells(iSource, "A").Resize(54, 4).Cut _
Destination:=Cells(iTarget, "A")
Cells(iSource + 54, "A").Resize(54, 4).Cut _
Destination:=Cells(iTarget, "E")
iSource = iSource + 108
iTarget = iTarget + 54

Loop Until IsEmpty(Cells(iSource, "A").Value)

End Sub
