have you looked at MSDN's documentation?

Yes thank you, but I am not getting anyplace with the docs. I can't seem to make anything work since I need the ID or the Models to show as the column headers and I have no way of knowing the models in advance or what the ID is all of the docs just confuse me.

Basically you want to transpose rows into columns and columns into rows.
Couple of questions.
1. Why do you want data in that way? Why I am asking is, if you have hundreds of records, converting them into columns is not a good idea. BTW, how many records/columns do you have in your table?
2. You have an ID column? Is it a unique value incremented by 1 for each record?

[1.] Its for a report displayed as a grid, and in printing out the report most of the columns coz the report to extend way beyond the boundaries. Plus ++ the look is much cleaner with fewer pages.

[2.] Table has 96 columns, but each query will be a group of them the largest group of 23 and it will be for a single instance. "SELECT column's3, 4, 5 FROM myTable WHERE column2='X' "

Column1 is the ID column and it is a unique value incremented by 1 for each record.
