SELECT  *
  FROM  (SELECT job,
                sum(decode(deptno,10,sal)) DEPT10,
                sum(decode(deptno,20,sal)) DEPT20,
                sum(decode(deptno,30,sal)) DEPT30,
                sum(decode(deptno,40,sal)) DEPT40
           FROM scott.emp
       GROUP BY job)
ORDER BY 1;

Is there a way to make deptno a select from scott.dept table? not hardcode it.  Thanks
