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.
