Pivot Query

Posted on 2013-01-29
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-01-30
Please see attached ON the DATABASE TABLE TAB.  This is my source DATA.
Please see attached ON the How it Should look TAB.  
Occurence = Wall

COLUMN 1 = The multiplier WHERE Priority=1 FROM the databasetable
COLUMN 2 = The multiplier WHERE Priority=2 FROM the databasetable

Please see attached ON the What Query returns tab

This is not what I want.  I need TO PIVOT the priority As the columns AND THEN DROP the multiplier VALUES IN each COLUMN according TO priority

Here is my query.  Can someone please take a look and tell me what I should do to make this work.  If possible, could you provide some code.  


select Occurence AS Wall, Multiplier, [1], [2]
from (
      select Occurence, Multiplier,Priority, row_number() over (partition by Occurence ORDER BY Occurence) rn
      from tblCadenceStrategydetails_test
) o
pivot(Max(Priority) for rn in ([1], [2])) p
ORDER BY Occurence

I am really in a bind to get this working.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is what you are after:

select Occurence AS Wall, [1], [2]
from (
      select Occurence, Multiplier, Priority
      from tblCadenceStrategydetails_test
) o
pivot(MAX(Multiplier) for Priority in ([1], [2])) p
ORDER BY Occurence
