I have a table which looks like this:

   A     B      C    D  
1 red   blue  green white  
2 blue  red   white yellow
3 red   blue  green white  
4 red   blue  green white 

and would like to get a result like this:

col1 col2 col3
1     A    red
1     B    blue
1     C    green
3     A    red
3     B    blue

It is kind of the opposite of the creation of a pivot table.

Is there any way on how do this with a function or plugin in Google Spreadsheet?
