pivot fonction in sql server 2005

Hi
I got the code below from ralmada and it works fine producing output as illustrated in TABLE A below.

I would now like to modify the code so that the returned column names for  the Dates are appended  with the text 'Hardware' as shown in TABLE B

I have concatenated  'Hardware' in the variable @colshw
like
select @colshw = stuff((select '],[' + right(convert(varchar, st, 106), 8)+' Hardware'

which compiles fine and runs   but  the results are as TABLE B, '0' for all cell entries concat
any help appreciated...thanks
/* pivot for hardware */
declare @strSQLhw varchar(max);
declare @colshw varchar(max);

	select 	dateadd(m, datediff(m, 0, @start_date_range), 0) as st,

	union all
	select dateadd(m, 1, st),
			et
	from CTE 
	where dateadd(m, 1, st) <= et
)
select @colshw = stuff((select '],[' + right(convert(varchar, st, 106), 8)
 from CTE for xml path('')), 1, 2, '') + ']'

Try this:

/* pivot for hardware */
declare @strSQLhw varchar(max);
declare @colshw varchar(max);
;with CTE as (
	select 	dateadd(m, datediff(m, 0, @start_date_range), 0) as st, 
		dateadd(m, datediff(m, 0, @end_date_range), 0) as et
	union all
	select dateadd(m, 1, st),
			et
	from CTE 
	where dateadd(m, 1, st) <= et
)
select @colshw = stuff((select '],[' + right(convert(varchar, st, 106), 8)+' Hardware'
 from CTE for xml path('')), 1, 2, '') + ']'


set @strSQLhw = '

select server_name, ' + @colshw + '  from (

This sound like a nonsense...

Does it stop working when you remove the PRINT command?

And what about the version with fixed quotes around Hardware?

blossomparkAuthor Commented:
i commented out the PRINT command and again the result set returnes all 0 values

i am running it again now with the print command uncommented...

This code works fine for me:

declare @strSQLhw varchar(max);

	union all
	select dateadd(m, 1, st),et
	from CTE

)
select @colshw = stuff((select '],[' + right(convert(varchar, st, 106), 8) + ' Hardware' 
 from CTE for xml path('')), 1, 2, '') + ']'

print @colshw

set @strSQLhw = '

select server_name, ' + @colshw + '  from (
