Un-rotate Table?

I have a table that has fields named similar to:
Company
Employee
Year
Sales_01
Sales_02
.
.  (field names between Sales_03 and Sales_10)
.
Sales_11
Sales_12

What I need is to un-rotate the table so that I have a new (display) field called "month" and the Sales_?? fields separated by month and just called Sales.

So, if my table has data such as this:
Company Employee Year Sales_01 Sales_02 Sales_03 Sales_04 Sales_05 (trimmed out, but you get the idea)
ABC     12345    2011 12345.67 62534.23 98737.32 92873.34 12343.30 

Open in new window


The resulting data will look like this:
Company Employee Year Month Sales
ABC     12345    2011     1 12345.67 
ABC     12345    2011     2 62534.23 
ABC     12345    2011     3 98737.32 
ABC     12345    2011     4 92873.34 
ABC     12345    2011     5 12343.30 

Open in new window


I thought the T-SQL command "UNPIVOT" would work, but I'm not sure how to use it, and how the month field would appear.

TIA

Something like this:
DECLARE @T TABLE (Company VARCHAR(10),Employee INT, [year] INT, Sales01 INT, Sales02 INT, Sales03 INT, Sales04 INT)
INSERT INTO @T SELECT 'ABC',12345,2011,555,444,666,888

SELECT Company, Employee, year, cast(RIGHT(Sales,2) AS INT) AS [Month], SalesAmt
FROM (
SELECT * FROM @T T
UNPIVOT (SalesAmt FOR Sales IN (Sales01, Sales02, Sales03, Sales04)) AS uv
) T1
