Hi,

I have the following table.


-- Create Cross Tab Table


CREATE TABLE #MyCrossTable
(
      BatchId int,    
      [Status-0] int,  
      [Status-1] int,  
      [Status-2] int,  
      [Status-3] int,  
      [Status-4] int
)
GO

INSERT INTO #MyCrossTable SELECT 1001, 0, 1, 1,  0, 0
GO

INSERT INTO #MyCrossTable SELECT 1002, 1, 0, 0,  1, 1
GO

INSERT INTO #MyCrossTable SELECT 1003, 0, 0, 0,  0, 1
GO

INSERT INTO #MyCrossTable SELECT 1004, 0, 0, 0,  0, 1
GO


I need to UnPivot this Cross Tab Table  to Normal Table as following (This is the sample template)


-- Create Normal Table


CREATE TABLE #MyTable
(
      BatchId int,
      Status int
)
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1001, 1
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1001, 2
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1002, 0
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1002, 3
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1002, 4
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1003, 4
GO

INSERT INTO #MyTable SELECT 1004, 4
GO

Can you please provide me the T-SQL code needed for this UnPivot ?

Thanks

Just use UNION statement:
SELECT BatchId, 0
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-0] = 1
UNION
SELECT BatchId, 1
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-1] = 1
UNION
SELECT BatchId, 2
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-2] = 1
UNION
SELECT BatchId, 3
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-3] = 1
UNION
SELECT BatchId, 4
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-4] = 1

This link my help, but I will give my own explanation as well:
http://www.w3schools.com/sql/sql_union.asp

The basic query is to take a batchid and a literal value representing the number of status if status column with the same number has a value of 1 as that indicates existence of that status in the crosstab query.

e.g.
SELECT BatchId, 4
FROM #MyCrossTable
WHERE [Status-4] = 1

This query will bring back only the batch id values that have a status 4.  

Using UNION, we can join multiple statements (one for each status possible) so that we ultimately get all the values vertically instead of horizontally.

It is late at night, but hopefully that was cohesive enough.

Best regards,
Kevin

UNPIVOT and PIVOT are SQL 2005+.  UNION is more portable and is only one statement as you can just add INSERT INTO line above it to populate the #MyTable.

If the title is incorrect and this is for SQL Server 2005, then you avoid the multiple updates by converting the UNPIVOT query to the following:
SELECT batchid, cast(right(StatusName, charindex('-', reverse(StatusName))-1) as INT) as [status]
FROM (select batchid, [status-0],[status-1],[status-2],[status-3],[status-4] from #MyCrossTable)p
UNPIVOT
(status for StatusName in ( [status-0],[status-1],[status-2],[status-3],[status-4])) as unpvt
where status = 1
