I am pivoting an oracle view on a certain column. The values in this column may contain embedded spaces. I can get the column names to pivot ok if I surround them with single quotes, however, they then appear in the result with the quotes! Is there any way to get the pivoted column values/names to appear without the quotes? Assume it would not be possible to change the values in the pivoted column to eliminate the blanks.

I have attached a screen image that shows what I mean. pivot table
