Spreading the data in the Excel sheet

Hi,

Pls refer attached sample data sheet. I have about 30 Locations(Have shown only 3) and 4 shifts(A1-A4). I want them laid out in the format shown below. I did that by copy pasting the 3 sample locations shown, but  I didnt want to copy paste for all 30 locations and wanted to know if there was an easier way out.

Thanks,

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might try copying across the following formulas for cells B11:B13:
=INDEX($A$4:$A$33,1+(COLUMN()-COLUMN($B$11))/4)
=INDEX($C$1:$F$1,MOD(COLUMN()-COLUMN($B$12),4)+1)
=INDEX($C$4:$G$33,1+(COLUMN()-COLUMN($B$13))/4,MOD(COLUMN()-COLUMN($B$13),4)+1)

These formulas are designed to be used wherever you decide to put the table--just update the cell references.

Attached is another solution attempted using VBA.
You can enter any number of locations and any number of shifts under the specified column and generate the matrix in your way.
I've added another sheet with sample data and code.
