Hi Expert,

I have provided sample table in sql server :

ID      Name      Dep                Add
1      A               N                A-1
1      B               K                A-1
1      C               M                A-1
2      D               Z                A-2
2      E               O                A-2

Note: Above rows can be dynamic, it is not static like ID = 1 can have 3 rows as stated above or it could have more  or less than 3 as well.

Expected output is:
ID      Name1      Name2      Name3      Dep1      Dep2      Dep3      Add
1      A                  B                 C                N                K                M              A-1
2      D                  E               NULL        Z                O              NULL        A-2


Hopefully looking forward to hearing from you.
