How to display multiple column values as rows in my stored procedure

I have a stored procedure that display column values like this

ID      Entity    UnitID UnitName RoleID

1        Test       1         UnitTest    1
1        Test        1        UnitTest     2
1        Test        1         UnitTest    4

As you can see all my column values are same except RoleId changes What I want to see as

ID      Entity    UnitID UnitName RoleID   RoleID1    RoleID2

1        Test       1         UnitTest    1            2              4

Instead of displaying three times I want to have one row and create some temporary columns (RoleID1 and RoleID2) to store the values and sent back the results

I'm attaching my stored procedure here and I'm using microsoft sql server 2012

This is pivoting but in order to be able to do this you will have to know the maximum unittests you have and then use that to build that many columns.

For some reason the pivot table is not giving me the results I'm looking for. Is there anyway I can loop through current results and build a temp table

like loop through this result set

ID      Entity    UnitID UnitName RoleID

1        Test       1         UnitTest    1
1        Test        1        UnitTest     2
1        Test        1         UnitTest    4

and build a temp table with this result set

ID      Entity    UnitID UnitName RoleID   RoleID1    RoleID2

1        Test       1         UnitTest    1            2              4

You can loop but it is not recommended. Pivot exists for exact this reason, to turn column values in different rows in different column in the same row.

	SET NOCOUNT ON;

    -- Insert statements for procedure here
SELECT * INTO #tmp

			AND
			r.roleid not in (6,7)
) q
	ORDER BY UnitName

SELECT *
FROM (
    SELECT 
        EntityID,
		EntityName, 
        UnitID,
		Active,
		UnitName,
		RoleID
    FROM 
		#tmp
) as s
PIVOT
(
    MIN(UnitName)
    FOR RoleID IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10)
)AS pivot
END

Open in new window

If you have more than 10 RoleID values you will have to increase to maximum:

 FOR RoleID IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.....)
