I have a table the holds 2 values for each item,Current results the Max and Min values along with the flag for those values. I need the Values and the levels to be on the same row so that I only have 1 item number with those values, I was thinking of using Pivot but not sure how to do it dynamically as there are 760 rows. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
   
SELECT
[ITEMNMBR] = EXT00103.PT_UD_Key ,[VALUE ] = EXT00103.TOTAL,[LEVELS] = EXT00103.PT_UD_Number 
FROM         EXT00103

yes because i just read you column names from the result table you showed rather than your query

try this

select itemnmbr,[1] as max,[2] as min
from (SELECT
[ITEMNMBR] = PT_UD_Key ,[VALUE] = TOTAL,[LEVELS] = PT_UD_Number
FROM         EXT00103
where PT_UD_Number  in ('1','2')) as a
pivot (max(value) for levels in ([1],[2])) as pvt

order by 1
