Hi
I have a spreadsheet where I have to convert a column into rows with header and add 1 or 0 if data is present or not, as the row values.

Samples attached.

Can I do this by importing the spreadsheet into a SQL database and write a select statement? If so can the sql statement be provided?

so for one pair of origin and destination will have all the applicable days as 1 or 0 in one row.

There might be a way to do it directly in MS-Excel, but you could review the following EE Article by mark_wills -

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/SQL_Syntax/A_4256-Dynamic-Pivot-Procedure-without-the-Pivot-function.html

Have a stab at it yourself and we can answer any follow-up questions or fine-tune it if necessary..

I agree that it looks like you want a solution in SQL but just in case you just want to do this in Excel VBA code, have a look at the Sub in the attached file.
