Need help parsing a long list of record in Excel file

Hello,

 

I have a list of records in an Excel file.   The parameter type is in column A and it's value is in column B. 

 

Summary 
User :John Doe
User Name :jDoe
Job Location Heaven's Circle

 

Summary 
User :John Doe
User Name :jDoe
Job Location :Heaven's Circle

 

There are hundreds of records and I would like to transpose and place the records into a single table

 

User           User Name    Job Location

John Doe   jDoe              Heaven's circle

etc..

 

Would you provide some guidance on how I should address this? 

 

Best,

holydragon
