First, this question was basically asked in July of 2010:
I'm re-asking it in the hopes that Analytics has changed sufficiently since then as to enable this feature, or that fresh eyes three years later might yield a better answer.
Here's what I'm trying to do: I ultimately want to generate a table (which I'll import into Excel) where the left column contains the names of the pages, and the top row contains the months of the year. So if A2 contains "/somepageURL/", B2 would contain the number of pageviews it received in June, C2 would be the pageviews in July, D2 would be August, and so on. A3 would contain "/anotherpageURL/" and the cells going across would be the pageviews for THAT one.
I can find a pile of Custom Reports I can build that do something that's sort of close-ish, but taking it from what GA offers to what I actually need is a few hours of cutting and pasting data between spreadsheets.
Closest I've gotten is that the leftmost column lists the months, the column next to it lists the page URL, and the cells show the pageviews per month. But to track the thousands of pages in the website, to get what I need I'd have to take D4 and paste it into B4, E5 would have to get pasted to B5 and so on.
If my description isn't clear, the link above is to a post that starts with a table that's similar to what I'm after (although it groups by day instead of by month).
