When you say this won't work, are you getting errors with your syntax, or is the result nor what you are expecting?

error is INCORRECT SYNTAX near AS

Try adding the END keyword before the AS, as I have shown here

SELECT     contactdetails_id, CASE WHEN contactdetails_typeid = 8 THEN contactdetails_value END AS Website,
                      CASE WHEN contactdetails_typeid = 7 THEN contactdetails_value END AS mobile
FROM         tbl_contactdetails
GROUP BY contactdetails_id

And they will be on two different lines if you simply comment out the group by. So, you also need to then use aggregate functions when using the group by


SELECT     contactdetails_Linkid, max(CASE WHEN contactdetails_typeid = 8 THEN contactdetails_value else ''end) AS Website,
                      max(CASE WHEN contactdetails_typeid = 7 THEN contactdetails_value else '' end) AS mobile
FROM         tbl_contactdetails
GROUP BY contactdetails_Linkid
