will you have 1 single row to be filled, or several?
where does the data come from, actually? another table? excel? ...
do you have
what exactly goes into which column? from the data/sample/column names it's not clear.

please clarify.

Data is coming from this query:

SELECTSM.Schedule
FROM dbo.ShiftManage SM , dbo.EmployeeInfo EI
Where SM.MgrNum = EI.NUM AND SM.[Group]= 'PRODUCTION'

it will be single row always..

sorry if I confuse you more...

all I want to know whether it is possible to insert data that will span across multiple columns...

for e.g:

Table (Col1, Col2, Col3 ,Col4,   Col5,  Col6)

I want to insert SampleData that will span across multiple columns..

Col1  Col2  Col3   Col4   Col5  Col6
SampleData1         SampleData2


If possible please let me know..

Thanks

sure it is possible... it might be "tricky", but not impossible.
but, as I wrote above, it must be clarified how exactly the "input" data has to be "split".
what are the rules (first, in human language !)

note: if you wanted to have actually the data to be "merged", like in Excel, over several columns: that is NOT possible in a database.

SELECT  SM.Schedule
FROM dbo.ShiftManage SM , dbo.EmployeeInfo EI
Where SM.MgrNum = EI.NUM AND SM.[Group]= 'PRODUCTION'

Schedule
5:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mon-Thu
3:00 PM - 1:00 AM Mon-Thu
9:00 PM - 7:00 AM Mon-Thu

----------------------------------------------

I want to lay the data in this format:

Name1  Num1    TrainOr1        Name2  Num2    TrainOr2     Name3    Num3    TrainOr3
5:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mon-Thu    3:00 PM - 1:00 AM Mon-Thu  9:00 PM - 7:00 AM Mon-Thu

What is your problem?
1) Wanting rusult of column Name1 span unther the titles of the 2 next columns?
Name1  Num1    TrainOr1
5:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mon-Thu
In what circumstances?  
Guess  concatinate titles an column content to make it one virtual column tackles your problem

2) Pivot result
Name1  Num1    TrainOr1        Name2  Num2    TrainOr2     Name3    Num3    TrainOr3
5:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mon-Thu    3:00 PM - 1:00 AM Mon-Thu  9:00 PM - 7:00 AM Mon-Thu
SQL2000 lacks a lot of functionality that can be usefull

Trick is to get a number 1,2,3 to your result to know where it should result. A temp-table with a identity-column is a possibility.
Then something like this could be a solution
select (max(x.name1),max(x.name2)
from
 (select case when rownumid=1 then shedule else null end  as Name1,null as name2
 union select null as name1,case when rownumid=2 then shedule else null end  as Name2
 ) as x
