Hello.  I am trying to develop an ASP.NET app that displays linear data as a pivot table, and I have no idea how to go about it. My table is set up like this:
VESSEL
VOYAGE
PORT
ARRIVAL
I want this to display in a table like the following:
VESSEL   VOYAGE   PORT1   PORT2   PORT3   (Ports are different)
vsl1          voy1          date1      date2    date3
vsl2          voy2          date1      date2    date3
vsl3          voy3          date1      date2    date3

Can somebody help me with this? In Access, this is pretty easy, but how do I do this in SQL Server 2000?

your example:

SELECT vessel
            ,voyage
            ,port1 = CASE PORT WHEN 'port1' then arrival else null end
            ,port2  = CASE PORT WHEN 'port2' then arrival else null end
            ,port3 = CASE PORT when 'port3' then arrival else null end
FROM voyages
