Hi,
I have a table with sample data:

GroupID, TaskID, LaborID, QTY
1, Fix Bulbs, 3, 5
1, Fix Stairs, 3, 2
1, Fix XYZ, 4, 1

I want to write a query that would display the LaborID as columns, and the TaskID as the rows.
I suppose this is Pivot, but I am not clear. Been a long month.

	) P
	PIVOT
	(

I don't know what the LaborID's will be though in advance, it could be any varying amount and ID #.

then you should create the pivot sql dynamically...

just create this part [1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6] from the table by using a query that will include all the values.. and concat it twith the given query and execute it...
