Sample tableI have a table pl_combined_data that I would like to have additional columns of data updated from data in the same row.  If there is data in the column, I would like it to use the new data to update following columns of data.

For example (original table):

PN                   2000         2001      2002     2003     2004

100000-001     88             NULL     NULL     90
100001-001     NULL        87          87          NULL    88
100002-001     NULL        NULL     NULL      88         NULL


Desired output

PN                   2000         2001      2002     2003     2004

100000-001     88             88         88          90        90
100001-001     NULL        87          87          87        88
100002-001     NULL        NULL     NULL      88        88

although I say the below code, is not very programmatic, but it should work as required.

select 
PN
,[1997]
,COALESCE([1998],[1997])		as [1998]
,COALESCE([1999],[1998],[1997]) as [1999]
,COALESCE([2000],[1999],[1998],[1997]) as [2000]
,COALESCE([2001],[2000],[1999],[1998],[1997]) as [2001]
,COALESCE([2002],[2001],[2000],[1999],[1998],[1997]) as [2002]
,COALESCE([2003],[2002],[2001],[2000],[1999],[1998],[1997]) as [2003]
,COALESCE([2004],[2003],[2002],[2001],[2000],[1999],[1998],[1997]) as [2004]
