Hi all,

I have a query that I need to convert from Access97 to TSQL.  

I've written a simple count/group by select to get the data to this state but I can't figure out the next step.

Here's where I am:
Location        cover           hits
140 ML           A                  21
140 ML           B                  14
140 ML           C                  19
181 ML           A                  45
181 ML           C                  10
181 ML           D                  45
....

And where I need to end up
cover           Total            140 ML            181 ML     ....(needs to grow dynamically)
A                  66                 21                   45
B                  14                 14
C                  29                 19                    10
D                  45                                         45

I've looked at the Pivot function however I was unable to figure out how to support n columns with custom names. This code will be in a stored procedure so dynamic tsql will work too.
