PIVOTing Data in SQL

You can use the PIVOT SQL command to transpose Row data into Column data. This means that you can take a set of rows and make fields out of them! Each row in the results table (based on the particular query / data) will represent a field. In this next small example, I have pivoted 6 fields (RowField1 - RowField6) depending on the first table's Field values:

SELECT DISTINCT * FROM (
SELECT Field1, Field2, Field3

FROM [Table]

) a

PIVOT(
MIN(Field2)
FOR a.Field1 IN (RowField1,
RowField2,
RowField3,
RowField4,
RowField5,
RowField6)
) AS b
WHERE b.RowField3 = 'TEST'
