converting rows to clumns using shell script

I have a script which converts rows to columns.
file_name=$1
mailid=$2
#CREATE BACKUP OF ORIGINAL FILE
#cp ${file_name}.xlsx ${file_name}_temp.xlsx
#tr '\t' '|' < ${file_name}_temp.xlsx > ${file_name}_temp.csv
#rm ${file_name}_temp.xlsx
pivot_row=`head -1 ${file_name}`
sed 1d ${file_name}>Sandeep
print "QUARTER\tMETRIC\tMETRIC_VALUE" > pivot_results.xlsx
#LOOP WHILE ROWS ARE LEFT
while IFS= read line
do
counter=1
curr_line=$line
curr_metric=`echo $line | cut -f1 -d","`
curr_value="dummy"
#LOOP WHILE COLUMN VALUES FOR THE CURRENT ROW ARE NOT NULL
while [[ $curr_value != "" ]];
do
((counter=counter+1))
curr_value=`echo $line | cut -f${counter} -d","`
if [[ $curr_value != "" ]]; then
curr_pivot_value=`echo $pivot_row | cut -f${counter} -d","`
print "${curr_pivot_value}\t${curr_metric}\t${curr_value}" >> pivot_results.xlsx
fi
done
done < Sandeep
rm Sandeep
echo "Pivoting completed successfully!!"
uuencode pivot_results.xlsx pivot_results.xls | mailx -s PIVOT $mailid
echo "Result mailed to specified id!!"
for example the input is like this
1990 1991
kiran 201 202

1990 kiran 201
