I believe PIVOT operator in sql server can be used to achieve this kind of output. That result can be binded to grid.  Refer:
http://sqlserveradvisor.blogspot.com/2009/03/sql-server-convert-rows-to-columns.html

Sql Server experts can help you more on this.

you can do that using DataTable & GridView:
DataTable dtOriginal = new DataTable();
// ...
// Init your DataTable here
// ...

// Display the contents of the original table:
GridView1.DataSource = dtOriginal;
GridView1.DataBind();

// Create a new table for the summerized data:
DataTable dtSummary = new DataTable();
dtSummary.Columns.Add("Date"); // add column for the Date
foreach (DataRow dr in dtOriginal.Rows)
{
	if (!dtSummary.Columns.Contains(dr["Region"].ToString())) // make sure the column is not duplicated
		dtSummary.Columns.Add(dr["Region"].ToString()); // add the Region as a new column
}

foreach (DataRow dr in dtOriginal.Rows)
{
	string date = dr["Date"].ToString();
	foreach (DataRow drDate in dtOriginal.Select("Date = '" + date + "'"))
	{
		string region = dr["Region"].ToString();
		string percentage = dr["Percentage"].ToString();

		if (dtSummary.Select("Date = '" + date + "'").Length > 0) // if the date group already exists
		{
			dtSummary.Select("Date = '" + date + "'")[0][region] = percentage; // set the percentage under the given region
		}
		else // otherwise, add a new row:
		{
			nr = dtSummary.NewRow();
			nr["Date"] = date;
			nr[region] = percentage;
			dtSummary.Rows.Add(nr);
		}
	}
}

// Display the results:
GridView2.DataSource = dtSummary;
GridView2.DataBind();

Given the above problem, I would have proceeded in the following order.

Step 1: Get the data from SQL and load in a local DataSetMain variable.
Step 2: Create a temporary DataSetTemp variable
Step 3: Get the unique set of regions and create the columns in DataSetTemp dataset table
Step 4: Get the unique set of dates
Step 5: For each date in the Step 4, Query the DataSetMain variable (using DataView.RowFilter property) and create a row in the DataSetTemp
Step 6: Bind the DataSetTemp to the grid.

Hope this helps, Sorry for not giving you a code snippet.

Hi abdkhlaif,

I am facing litle problem with your code... Can u pls help me..
foreach (DataRow drDate in dtOriginal.Select("Date = '" + date + "'"))
      {
            string region = dr["Region"].ToString();
            string percentage = dr["Percentage"].ToString();

            if (dtSummary.Select("Date = '" + date + "'").Length > 0) // if the date group already exists
            {
                  dtSummary.Select("Date = '" + date + "'")[0][region] = percentage; // set the percentage under the given region
            }
            else // otherwise, add a new row:
            {

Its not entering the Inner ForEach loop... In your case dtOriginal has data but dtSummary is coming empty with just column names.. No data is copied to dtSummary..
Please help me what is gng wrong in the inner ForEach loop.

Thanks in advance...
