Using MS Sql Server 2008.

My table has field name  DCode1, DCode2, DCode3, DCode4, DCode5. The values of all these DCode fields is either 'F1' or 'F7'.
I want to write a select statement with the following constraint:
When any DCode value is F1 then Go in F1, if DCode value is 'F7', then go in F7.

Select ???? as F1, ???? as F7.............How do I do that?

I'm not really sure what you're talking about when you say go in F1/F7.  Can you provide some example data including what it looks like in the table and what the expected results are?
