something like this?

``````select 	max([JAN]) as [Jan],

max([JAN_cogs]) as [Jan_cogs],

max([JAN_tba]) as [JAN_tba],

... and so on...

from (

select 	sales,

[cogs],

[trans billing amt],

[month],

[month] + '_cogs' as [month_cogs],

[month] + '_tba' as [month_tba]

from ttg_monthly_revenue_vw

) o

pivot(sum([sales]) for [month] in ([JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC]) PVTTBL

pivot(sum([cogs]) for [month_cogs] in ([JAN_cogs],[FEB_cogs],[MAR_cogs],[APR_cogs],[MAY_cogs],[JUN_cogs],[JUL_cogs],[AUG_cogs],[SEP_cogs],[OCT_cogs],[NOV_cogs],[DEC_cogs]) PVTTBL1

pivot(sum([trans billing amt]) for [month_tba] in ([JAN_tba],[FEB_tba],[MAR_tba],[APR_tba],[MAY_tba],[JUN_tba],[JUL_tba],[AUG_tba],[SEP_tba],[OCT_tba],[NOV_tba],[DEC_tba]) PVTTBL2

My table structure is the following:

[TRANS].[dbo].[ttg_ssrs_reporting_metrics_vw]
([segment]
,[group]
,[division]
,[division_city]
,[inv_year_id]
,[inv_month_id]
,[TransCost]
,[Sales]
,[COGS]
,[trans billing amt])

I would like to pivot the table to the following:

Segment | group | Division | division_city | Inv_year_ID | Entry_Type | Jan | Feb | Mar | Apr | May | etc...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
transcost
COGS
transbillingAmt
Sales

In that case you first need to unpivot and then pivot
See the below:

``````select 	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,Entry_type

,[JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC]

from

(

select      a.[segment]

,a.[group]

,a.[division]

,a.[division_city]

,a.[inv_year_id]

,a.[inv_month_id]

,up.Entry_type

,up.Amount

from ttg_ssrs_reporting_metrics_vw a

unpivot (amount for Entry_type in (Transcost, Sales, COGCS, [trans billing amt])) up

) o

pivot (sum(Amount) for inv_month_id in ([JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC])) p

same query, a bit more tidy:

``````select	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,Entry_type

,[JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC]

from

(

select	a.[segment]

,a.[group]

,a.[division]

,a.[division_city]

,a.[inv_year_id]

,a.[inv_month_id]

,up.Entry_type

,up.Amount

from ttg_ssrs_reporting_metrics_vw a

unpivot (amount for Entry_type in (Transcost, Sales, COGCS, [trans billing amt])) up

) o

pivot (sum(Amount) for inv_month_id in ([JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC])) p

ok, check this now:
``````select	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,Entry_type

,[JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC]

from

(

select	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,[inv_month_id]

,up.Entry_type

,up.Amount

from (

select 	segment, group, division, division_city,inv_year_id, inv_month_id,

convert(sql_variant, Transcost) as Transcost,

convert(sql_variant, Sales) as Sales,

convert(sql_variant, COGCS) as COGCs,

convert(sql_variant, [trans billing amt]) as [trans billing amt]

from ttg_ssrs_reporting_metrics_vw

) a

unpivot (amount for Entry_type in (Transcost, Sales, COGCS, [trans billing amt])) up

) o

pivot (sum(Amount) for inv_month_id in ([JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC])) p

if I remove the sql_variant conversion in line 20-23 I get this error then:

Msg 8167, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
The type of column "Sales" conflicts with the type of other columns specified in the UNPIVOT list.

Accepted Solution

what is the datatype of the Transcost, Sales, COGCS and trans billing amt column? can you just make them all the same datatype?
The below will make them all decimal 10, 2.

``````select	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,Entry_type

,[JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC]

from

(

select	[segment]

,[group]

,[division]

,[division_city]

,[inv_year_id]

,[inv_month_id]

,up.Entry_type

,up.Amount

from (

select 	segment, group, division, division_city,inv_year_id, inv_month_id,

convert(decimal(10,2), Transcost) as Transcost,

convert(decimal(10,2), Sales) as Sales,

convert(decimal(10,2), COGCS) as COGCs,

convert(decimal(10,2), [trans billing amt]) as [trans billing amt]

from ttg_ssrs_reporting_metrics_vw

) a

unpivot (amount for Entry_type in (Transcost, Sales, COGCS, [trans billing amt])) up

) o

pivot (sum(Amount) for inv_month_id in ([JAN],[FEB],[MAR],[APR],[MAY],[JUN],[JUL],[AUG],[SEP],[OCT],[NOV],[DEC])) p
