CREATE TABLE SomeTable([Column 0] varchar(50), [Column 1] int, [Column 3] varchar(50))

INSERT INTO SomeTable([Column 0], [Column 1], [Column 3]) VALUES
('AK810US#ABA', 2007, '7F'),
('AK810US#ABA', 2008, '7F'),
('AK810US#ABA', 2009, '87'),
('AK820US#ABA', 2007, '7F'),
('AK820US#ABA', 2008, '7F'),
('AK820US#ABA', 2009, '87'),
('AK830US#ABA', 2010, '87')

DECLARE @sql varchar(MAX) = 'SELECT t1.[Column 0] AS PN'

SELECT @sql = @sql + ', (SELECT MAX(t2.[Column 3])
    FROM SomeTable t2
    WHERE t2.[Column 0] = t1.[Column 0] AND t2.[Column 1] = ' +
    CONVERT(varchar, [Column 1]) + ') AS [' + CONVERT(varchar, [Column 1]) + ']'
FROM SomeTable
GROUP BY [Column 1]
ORDER BY [Column 1]

SET @sql = @sql + ' FROM SomeTable t1
    GROUP BY t1.[Column 0]
    ORDER BY t1.[Column 0]'

EXEC(@sql)

select *
  from SomeTable
pivot (max([Column 3]) for [Column 1] in ([2007],[2008],[2009])) as p
