Hi Experts,

I have attached an excel file. The top resultset is the way the
result gets displayed before the pivot. The second is
after the pivot is applied. I have a wuery currently that gives me
the second resultset after the pivot.

Below is the current query.



Here's what I want to do. I would want to get these values
from a table as there is a table that contains the values in [5],[-5],[1],[-1] that
I have hardcoded in pivot. I have commented out a field in the query as
Select *from tbl1. So here's basically what I am looking at

PIVOT
(
sum(maintab.amt)  
FOR maintab.scendes in (Select *from tbl1).

Not sure if it is possible or not but your help will be highly
appreciated.

Hi. The value list in the PIVOT operator has to be static, so you will need to use dynamic sql to get list from a query. An alternative is to PIVOT in a client reporting tool, such as Excel.
