lrbrister,

It looks like first you need to unpivot on the month and then pivot on the type. Sorting will be a different story as you have text months, so you will have to equate Jan to 1 ... and as you can see you will have to completely fill in (hard-code) the other months and other types in the pivot statements. If you need this to be dynamic for [type] then you need to use dynamic SQL. For the sort, I recommend you have a table of months short name with associated month number then you can use that to sort efficiently.
select *
from (

select [type], [value], [month]
from your_table_name
unpivot(value for [month] in (Jan, Feb, Mar)) u

) d
pivot(sum(value) for [type] in (Apd, Rsd))p
;

going on what mwvisa1 said...here's how you could make it dynamic. the first query pulls the values in the type table and makes them in a delimited list, The second one goes and makes your column headings into a delimited list. the 3rd one is a dynamic version of what mwvist1 posted.


----get the different types
DECLARE @typequery NVARCHAR(4000)
DECLARE @typenames NVARCHAR(4000)
SET @typequery = '
   ;WITH CTE ( CategoryId, typenames, type, length ) 
          AS ( SELECT DISTINCT 1 CategoryId, CAST( '''' AS VARCHAR(8000) ), CAST( '''' AS VARCHAR(8000)) type, 0
                 FROM table0
                GROUP BY type
                UNION ALL
               SELECT 1 CategoryId, CAST( p.[type] + 
                      CASE WHEN length = 0 THEN '''' ELSE '', '' END + typenames AS VARCHAR(8000) ), 
                      CAST( p.[type]  AS VARCHAR(8000)), length + 1
                 FROM CTE c
                JOIN table0 p
                   ON p.type > c.type) 
    SELECT @typenames = typenames 
      FROM ( 
      SELECT CategoryId, typenames, 
                    RANK() OVER ( PARTITION BY CategoryId ORDER BY length DESC )
               FROM CTE  ) D ( CategoryId, typenames, rank )
     WHERE rank = 1 '
   
EXEC sp_executesql
@typequery,
N'@typenames NVARCHAR(4000) OUTPUT', 
@typenames OUTPUT

----now get the columns 
DECLARE @colsquery NVARCHAR(4000)
DECLARE @cols NVARCHAR(4000)
SET @colsquery = '
			SELECT @cols = LEFT(cols, LEN(cols) - 1)
			FROM information_schema.columns p1
		    CROSS APPLY ( SELECT column_name + '',''
							 FROM information_schema.columns p2
							 WHERE p2.table_name = p1.table_name AND column_name <> ''Type''
							 ORDER BY table_name
							 FOR XML PATH('''') )  D ( cols )
			WHERE table_name = ''table0''
'
EXEC sp_executesql
@colsquery,
N'@cols NVARCHAR(4000) OUTPUT',
@cols OUTPUT
SELECT @cols

----execute the pivot query
DECLARE @pivotquery NVARCHAR(4000)
SET @pivotquery = '
SELECT *
FROM (

	SELECT [type], [value], [month]
	FROM table0
	UNPIVOT(value FOR [month] IN (' + @cols + ' )) u

) d
PIVOT(SUM(value) FOR [type] IN (' + @typenames + '))p
;'
EXEC sp_executesql
@pivotquery

rmm2001:
I'm not "getting it" for some reason.
Take a look at my screenprint...that's what I need to "unpivot so that the rows are the columns and vice versa...

try what mwvista1 said. that should get you what you want i think. the thing i posted was to make it dynamic so don't have to type in every single field for the pivot/unpivot commands. you'd just type in the table name.


select *
from (

select [type], [value], [month]
from your_table_name
unpivot(value for [month] in (Jan, Feb, Mar)) u

) d
pivot(sum(value) for [type] in (Apd, Rsd))p
;

hey folks...
I got it.  Used most of mwvisa1: and a touch of rmm2001 in the final solution (Attached)
mwvisa1...you mind a 350-150 split with  rmm2001?

select *
from (  
  
select [rep],[EventType], [value], [month]  
from dbo.tblRepScoreCard
unpivot(value for [month] in (Jan, Feb, Mar,Apr,May,Jun,Jul,Aug,Sept,Oct,Nov,Dec)) u  
  
) d  
pivot(sum(value) for [EventType] in (PASigned, PAComplete, Dropped, Funded))p  
order by p.rep, CHARINDEX(Left(p.[month],3),'xxJANFEBMARAPRMAYJUNJULAUGSEPOCTNOVDEC')/3
;
