Manipulating Query through industrial sql

Using Wonderware's industrial sql server (MS SQL server embedded), how can we change the output format of a query result.  When we run the following query

SELECT value, datetime, tagname
FROM history
WHERE tagname = 'temperature1'
AND DateTime > '24 Mar 1998 05:00'

we get a column of "temperature1" (column name is tagname) and a column of the actual temperatures (column name is value).  We want 1 column named temperature1 with all the values.  Additionally the AS syntax does not work, nor does the CASE statement.  Wonderware has been very little help.

Do not include column with 'tagname' name in select list , if you wnat only temperature values type 'SELECT value FROM...', if you also want 'datetime' column use 'SELECT value,dateime FROM...'
You do not need to put field into select statement to use it in the WHERE clause

If you want all the values of tagname = 'temperature1'
try this query.

SELECT value as 'Temperature1'
FROM history
WHERE tagname = 'temperature1'
AND DateTime > '24 Mar 1998 05:00'
if you want all the values dont check the tagname.
