SELECT   col1,
         MAX(CASE WHEN col2 = 'A' THEN col3 END) a,
         MAX(CASE WHEN col2 = 'B' THEN col3 END) b,
         MAX(CASE WHEN col2 = 'C' THEN col3 END) c
    FROM yourtable
GROUP BY col1
ORDER BY col1;

Depending on the amount of data you have, you may want to use a pivot command.

The syntax will be similar to:

select * from (
select col1, col2, col3 from mytable)
a
pivot (max(col3) for col2 in ([A],[B],[C])) as b

now i twist my data a little bit better and put them into a temp table

How can i make this result set (#result):
A    B     C        dD          dE            dF              dG
test test  test  01/05/2006
test test  test              01/06/2006
test test  test                           01/08/2006
test test  test                                       01/09/2006
test2 test2 test2 06/05/2013
test2 test2 test2             06/06/2013
test2 test2 test2                          06/08/2013
test2 test2 test2                                          06/09/2013  


to

A     B     C                 dD                    dE                     dF                     dG
test  test  test               01/05/2006      01/06/2006      01/08/2006      01/09/2006
test2 test2 test2        06/05/2013      06/06/2013      06/08/2013      06/09/2013


(notes: dD, dE .... are dynamic, but consider it as statis first to make it easier)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>>> (notes: dD, dE .... are dynamic, but consider it as statis first to make it easier)

you can't have dynamic columns in SQL.

every column must be known at the time the statement is parsed, not after it executes

no, a left join won't really help

but, using your data above, same idea as before, except it's easier because your data is already nulled and spread as needed to make the aggregation work

SELECT   a,b,c,
         MAX(dd) dd,
         MAX(de) de,
         MAX(df) df,
         max(dg) dg
    FROM yourtable
GROUP BY a,b,c
ORDER BY a,b,c;

both of the queries I posted above produces the results requested from the data provided

ID: 38760041 -- for the original data and results
ID: 38761058  -- for the extended data and new results

The dynamic column part is what might be needed, hence my suggestion. But on the other hand, you answered the original question plus addition ... I'll change my suggestion.
