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
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);
;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),
	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, '') + ']'

set @strSQLhw = '

select server_name, ' + @colshw + '  from (
select server_name, 
right(convert(varchar, dateadd(m, datediff(m, 0, [resolved_date]), 0), 106), 8)
 as eom, PROD_CAT1
		from #extranetHardware
		where [resolved_date] >= ''' + 
convert(varchar, @start_date_range,
 112) + ''' and [resolved_date] < ''' +convert(varchar, @end_date_range+1,112) + ''') o
		pivot (count(PROD_CAT1) for eom in (' + @colshw +' )) as p '

print (@strSQLhw)
execute (@strSQLhw)
