how can i change my query so it display results like cross tab or pivot format?

SELECT [Location Code], SUM(Quantity)
FROM dbo.[CQC$Item Ledger Entry]
WHERE [Item No_] = '10438'
AND [Location Code] IN ('10', '20', '90', '95')
GROUP BY [Location Code]

Open in new window



results are:
results current
not all locations have quantities all times but ideally I would like my results to be like (using results as screen shot shows):

10        20        90        95
            2500    5050


Any help would be great.

thank you so much.

metropia,

What databse are you using?  Will your report always be using those 4 location codes?

select
SUM(case when  [Location Code] = 10 then Quantity else 0 end) as l10,
SUM(case when  [Location Code] = 20 then Quantity else 0 end) as l20,
SUM(case when  [Location Code] = 90 then Quantity else 0 end) as l90,
SUM(case when  [Location Code] = 95 then Quantity else 0 end) as l95
FROM dbo.[CQC$Item Ledger Entry]
WHERE [Item No_] = '10438'

cannot debug query (must restart my pc ... )
so, there can be some errors ... but should be something like :

SELECT 
[10], [20], [90], [95]
FROM
(SELECT [Location Code], SUM(Quantity)
  FROM dbo.[CQC$Item Ledger Entry]) AS SourceTable
  PIVOT (
  SUM(Quantity)
  FOR [Location Code] IN ('10', '20', '90', '95') ) AS PivotTable

Open in new window

got it past that error :

SELECT '10', '20', '90', '95'
FROM
(SELECT [Location Code], Quantity
  FROM dbo.[CQC$Item Ledger Entry]) AS SourceTable
  PIVOT (
  SUM(Quantity)
  FOR [Location Code] IN ([10], [20], [90], [95]) ) AS PivotTable
