Splitting 2 columns data into rows without delimiter

Hello,

 

I have some data in an excel file that looks like this:

ProgramDateMoved toStatus ID
Test12023-04-05
2023-04-18
123 Program Group
Individual Program1
Completed123
Test22023-03-06
2023-03-02
456 Program Group
Individual Program2
Completed456
Test32023-04-17
2023-05-26
789 Program Group
Individual Program3
Completed789
Test42023-05-26
2023-06-02
123 Program Group
Individual Program4
Completed145

 

I need to get the Date column and Moved to column split into individual rows and the Date corresponds to the Moved to. Here is what I am looking for:

ProgramDateMoved toStatus ID
Test12023-04-05123 Program GroupCompleted123
Test12023-04-18Individual Program1Completed123
Test22023-03-06456 Program GroupCompleted456

Test32023-05-26Individual Program3Completed789
Test42023-05-26123 Program GroupCompleted145
Test42023-06-02Individual Program4Completed145

 

Appreciate the help.
