I have a series of tables representing the same stadium seat layout, so some rows have more cells (seats) than others. One cell in a table has an instruction for one seat, e.g. a color for stunt #n of a card show, with the next table being the next instruction, stunt #n+1

I want another tab to rearrange my input. Each corresponding cell (seat) will be a row. Then that cell's value in each table follows. So if I choose to put each table in a new tab, with the first seat being in A1 every time, I want to track A1's value through each table (stunt for the show).

Can pivot tables help me rearrange? Right now I'm using references like =A1 to help, but consecutive seats are columns in the tables, whereas my new output will have one seat per row.

So to summarize, I have tables showing the same layout over different points in time, and I want to see each corresponding cell's value through time.
