Check the pivot and unpivot functions for SQL Server 2005. I cannot give you an example with the data you provided since I need to see the data.
But in any case you learn about it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177410.aspx

I have been looking into using PIVOT but did ran into some problems there.

Here is the code I want to make a pivot, is it possible to do it with the query?


SELECT DISTINCT 
                      l.ls_letterid,  
                      m.ls_strength, m.ls_unitidname, m.ls_name, p.ls_package_name
FROM         FilteredLS_letter AS l INNER JOIN
                      FilteredLS_project AS v ON l.ls_projectid = v.ls_projectid INNER JOIN
                      Filteredls_project_medicinal_product AS vm ON v.ls_projectid = vm.ls_projectid INNER JOIN
                      FilteredLS_MEDICINAL_PRODUCT AS m ON vm.ls_medicinal_productid = m.ls_medicinal_productid INNER JOIN
                      FilteredAccount AS a ON m.ls_marketingauthorisationholderid = a.accountid INNER JOIN
                      FilteredLS_Package AS p ON m.ls_medicinal_productid = p.ls_medicinalproductid
WHERE     (l.ls_letterid = '540180EA-2F49-DE11-AC68-0050568C7C98')
