Hi,

I am not able to use pivot query to produce desired result. Please help me to get reqult that I want using Pivot query.  I have added the table script and data  in the code Snippet. I want to display the information like table given as follow using Pivot query.  
Qty_Rang      red        green    blue        black      
0-10                      12         13              14        15

10-20              16          17        18        -

20-30              20          21         22       -
Column names ( red, green blue....) are not fix it can increase or decrease. I need a dynamic Pivot query for this.

thanks,
waiting for your reply.
CREATE TABLE [dbo].[testPivo](
	[pid] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
	[qty_from] [int] NOT NULL,
	[qty_to] [int] NOT NULL,
	[color] [varchar](50) NOT NULL,
	[price] [decimal](9, 2) NULL,
 CONSTRAINT [PK_testPivo_1] PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED 
(
	[pid] ASC
)WITH (PAD_INDEX  = OFF, STATISTICS_NORECOMPUTE  = OFF, IGNORE_DUP_KEY = OFF, ALLOW_ROW_LOCKS  = ON, ALLOW_PAGE_LOCKS  = ON) ON [PRIMARY]
) ON [PRIMARY]



insert into testPivo values(0,10,'red',12)
insert into testPivo values(0,10,'green',13)
insert into testPivo values(0,10,'blue',14)
insert into testPivo values(10,20,'red',16)
insert into testPivo values(10,20,'green',17)
insert into testPivo values(10,20,'blue',18)
insert into testPivo values(20,30,'red',20)
insert into testPivo values(20,30,'green',21)
insert into testPivo values(20,30,'blue',22)
