I need to create a pivot table, but I am not getting the results that I need.  I have the following data in a single table

QuestID       CustID       Results          Timestamp
--------------------------------------------------------------
Q1                      1            2/10/2004    2011-03-02 11:52am
Q2                      1            Yes               2011-03-02 11:52am
Q3                      1            Fridays         2011-03-02 11:52am
Q1                      2            2/16/2006    2011-03-02 1:52pm
Q2                      2            No                2011-03-02 1:52pm
Q3                      2            Sundays       2011-03-02 1:52pm

I need to pivot the QuestID, so the results would look more like this.

CustID          Q1            Q2               Q3          Timestamp (the timestamp is the same for all questions)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1              2/10/2004     Yes         Fridays       2011-03-02 11:52am
2              2/16/2060     No          Sundays     2011-03-02 1:52pm

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated

Thanks,

SELECT CustID, [Q1], [Q2], [Q3], [Q4], Timestamp
FROM (
      select QuestID ,CustID ,Results,Timestamp
      from yourTable
      ) P
      PIVOT
