Excel Marco to change data to line row with date

Hello Experts Exchange
I have a Spreadsheet that has days of the week and a week number.

I would like a macro to write the data from the table into data I can import into SQL Server.

I have added a spreadsheet with how the data is on sheet1, and on sheet2 is how I would like the data to be changed to.

The date field should be worked out by taking the month date from cell E1, then get the week number, then get the day of the week.

Thank you for reading.

Try this macro:
Sub prepare_data()
Dim SN1 As String, SN2 As String
Dim Wd As Integer, Dt As Date
Dim rn As Long, ro As Long, M As Integer
Dim ws1 As Worksheet, ws2 As Worksheet
SN1 = "Sheet1"
SN2 = "Sheet2"
Set ws1 = Worksheets(SN1)
Set ws2 = Worksheets(SN2)
rn = 5
ro = 2
ws2.Cells(ro, 1) = "Location"
ws2.Cells(ro, 2) = "Shift"
ws2.Cells(ro, 3) = "Worker"
ws2.Cells(ro, 4) = "Date"
ws2.Cells(ro, 5) = "Hours"
Dt = DateValue(ws1.Cells(1, 5))
M = Month(Dt)
Wd = Weekday(Dt, vbMonday)
With ws1
    Do While M = Month(Dt)
        If Wd < 6 Then  'Comment this IF if you can have workdays in saturday or sunday
            ws2.Cells(ro, 1) = .Cells(rn, 1)
            ws2.Cells(ro, 2) = .Cells(rn, 2)
            ws2.Cells(ro, 3) = .Cells(rn, 3)
            ws2.Cells(ro, 4) = Dt
            ws2.Cells(ro, 5) = .Cells(rn, Wd + 3)
            If ws2.Cells(ro, 5) = "" Then ws2.Cells(ro, 5) = 0
            ro = ro + 1
        End If
        Dt = DateAdd("d", 1, Dt)
        Wd = Weekday(Dt, vbMonday)
        If Wd = 7 Then rn = rn + 1
End With
End Sub
