I am trying to transpose large datasets inexcel (44 columns and 57774 rows) but it keeps giving me the message we can'tpaste because copy area and paste area aren't the same size. Is there a way totranspose all the data at one time instead of piece by piece? One dataset has agreat amount of rows and columns. 

I tried this R function to transpose the datamatrix:

data <- read.table("your_file_location", sep ="\t", comment.char = "", stringAsFactors = F, header = T)

transpose_data <- t(data)

But I received tis error:

unused argument (stringAsFactors = F)


Is there another way (I prefer a way with Excel)?
