Merge lines of data based on value of a field

I have SQL 2005 view that has lines of data that I need to merge into new columns.
Example: (see attached spreadsheet)
If AccountType is AA then place value in Period1
If AccountType is B1 then place value in Budget 1 - problem is that I want these in the same line for my reports.
On attached spreadsheet the top version is what I am trying to get. The bottom is what I currently have. Basically I am trying to add a new column called Budget1 thru 12 basically that places the value if AccountType is B1.

I currenlty have the following:
CASE WHEN a.ActivityType='B1' THEN Period1 Else 0 END as Budget1
but this gives me seperate line of data for Budget and Period

Hi,

you mean to say this.....

SELECT AccountType, SUM(Budget)Budget, SUM(Period)Period
FROM
(
SELECT AccountType, 
	CASE WHEN AccountType = 'AA' THEN Value ELSE 0 END AS Budget,
	CASE WHEN AccountType = 'A1' THEN Value ELSE 0 END AS Period
FROM Table1
)AS A
Group By AccountType
