I have data in a table like this:

Level1      Level2       Level3       Level4       Error
--------      --------       --------       --------       ------
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         E
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         E
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         E
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         A
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         A
Red1        Red2          Red3         Blue4        E
Red1        Red2          Blue3        Blue4        W
Red1        Red2          Blue3        Blue4        W
Red1        Red2          Red3         Blue4        A

I need a function to give a cross tab counts result like the following:

Level1      Level2       Level3       Level4       Error_A     Error_E      Error_W
--------      --------       --------       --------       ---------      ---------      ----------
Red1        Red2          Red3         Red4         2                3
Red1        Red2          Red3         Blue4         1                1
Red1        Red2          Blue3        Blue4                                              2

Do I use this in a function or as a select statement in a query?  If in a function, can you tell me how to use it?

You can use this as part of your SELECT statement itself. No Need for any functions to handle this
