Creating Rows in a SQL View from existing columns

I have a SQL-View that has columns that represent months (periods). These are budget columns for the each month for the year. What I need is the data in each of these columns placed in a new column but the heading of this column is now a single column named Period and they have value  0 thru 12 (see attached samples and attached code).

Note code below:
Notice how I have all the columns named a.PeriodXActivityAmount -  these 13 columns I want to be a single column named "Period" and they would basically have a value of 0 thru 12. Inside would have the value (my data rows would basically increase by 13 times the numbers of rows)

 format-I-need.xls

SELECT     a.FiscalYear, a.ActivityType, m.MasterAccount, a.Period0ActivityAmount, a.Period1ActivityAmount, a.Period2ActivityAmount, a.Period3ActivityAmount, 
                      a.Period4ActivityAmount, a.Period5ActivityAmount, a.Period6ActivityAmount, a.Period7ActivityAmount, a.Period8ActivityAmount, 
                      a.Period9ActivityAmount, a.Period10ActivityAmount, a.Period11ActivityAmount, a.Period12ActivityAmount, 
                      m.MasterAccountCurrentBalance
FROM         FS_GLActualBudgetActivity AS a WITH (nolock) INNER JOIN
                      FS_GLMasterAccount AS m WITH (nolock) ON m.GLMasterAccountKey = a.GLMasterAccountKey
WHERE     (a.ActivityType = 'B1') 
ORDER BY a.FiscalYear, a.ActivityType, m.MasterAccount

try this

Select 
FiscalYear, ActivityType, MasterAccount, MasterAccountCurrentBalance,
periodNo, period 
From (
SELECT     a.FiscalYear, a.ActivityType, m.MasterAccount, 
	a.Period0ActivityAmount Period0, a.Period1ActivityAmount Period1, 
	a.Period2ActivityAmount Period2, a.Period3ActivityAmount Period3, 
	a.Period4ActivityAmount Period4, a.Period5ActivityAmount Period5, 
	a.Period6ActivityAmount Period6, a.Period7ActivityAmount Period7,

FROM         FS_GLActualBudgetActivity AS a WITH (nolock) INNER JOIN
                      FS_GLMasterAccount AS m WITH (nolock) ON m.GLMasterAccountKey = a.GLMasterAccountKey
WHERE     (a.ActivityType = 'B1') ) p
unpivot (period for periodNo in
( Period0, Period1, Period2, Period3, Period4, Period5, Period6,
	 Period7, Period8, Period9, Period10, Period11, Period12)
) as unpvt
ORDER BY FiscalYear, ActivityType, MasterAccount

I just checked the format you want file, to get the period numbers try this

Select 
FiscalYear, ActivityType, MasterAccount, MasterAccountCurrentBalance,
periodNo,  Period  
From (
SELECT     a.FiscalYear, a.ActivityType, m.MasterAccount, 
	a.Period0ActivityAmount [0], a.Period1ActivityAmount [1], 
	a.Period2ActivityAmount [2], a.Period3ActivityAmount [3], 
	a.Period4ActivityAmount [4], a.Period5ActivityAmount [5], 
	a.Period6ActivityAmount [6], a.Period7ActivityAmount [7], 
	a.Period8ActivityAmount [8], a.Period9ActivityAmount [9], 
	a.Period10ActivityAmount [10], a.Period11ActivityAmount [11], 
	a.Period12ActivityAmount [12], 
                      m.MasterAccountCurrentBalance
FROM         FS_GLActualBudgetActivity AS a WITH (nolock) INNER JOIN
                      FS_GLMasterAccount AS m WITH (nolock) ON m.GLMasterAccountKey = a.GLMasterAccountKey
WHERE     (a.ActivityType = 'B1') ) p
unpivot (period for [No in
( [0], [1], [2], [3], [4], [5], [6],
	 [7], [8], [9], [10], [11], [12])
) as unpvt
ORDER BY FiscalYear, ActivityType, MasterAccount

Unpivot will be best solution, check this query
Select
		UnPivt.FiscalYear, 
		UnPivt.ActivityType, 
		UnPivt.MasterAccount, 
		UnPivt.MasterAccountCurrentBalance,
		tblPivot.Property as 'Date_Name'
		tblPivot.Value  as 'Valuee'
(
	SELECT    a.FiscalYear, 
			  a.ActivityType, 
			  m.MasterAccount, 
			  m.MasterAccountCurrentBalance
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period0ActivityAmount) as Period0ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period1ActivityAmount) as Period1ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period2ActivityAmount) as Period2ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period3ActivityAmount) as Period3ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period4ActivityAmount) as Period4ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period5ActivityAmount) as Period5ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period6ActivityAmount) as Period6ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period7ActivityAmount) as Period7ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period8ActivityAmount) as Period8ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period9ActivityAmount) as Period9ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period10ActivityAmount) as Period10ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period11ActivityAmount) as Period11ActivityAmount, 
			  CONVERT(sql_variant,a.Period12ActivityAmount) as  Period12ActivityAmount
			  
	FROM         
		FS_GLActualBudgetActivity AS a WITH (nolock) 
		INNER JOIN FS_GLMasterAccount AS m WITH (nolock) ON m.GLMasterAccountKey = a.GLMasterAccountKey
	WHERE     
		(a.ActivityType = 'B1') 
	ORDER BY 
		a.FiscalYear,	
		a.ActivityType, 
		m.MasterAccount
) UnPivt  UNPIVOT (Value For Property In 
  (
		Period0ActivityAmount, 
		Period1ActivityAmount, 
		Period2ActivityAmount, 
		Period3ActivityAmount, 
		Period4ActivityAmount, 
		Period5ActivityAmount, 
		Period6ActivityAmount, 
		Period7ActivityAmount, 
		Period8ActivityAmount, 
		Period9ActivityAmount, 
		Period10ActivityAmount,
		Period11ActivityAmount,
		Period12ActivityAmount
)) as tblPivot

Appari - your first view works but it gives the values as Period1, Period2, and so on. The second one keeps giving me an error. I tried to solve the error but it keeps happening.
