I have an sql database and need to get output as a table. I have done this before but always gone horizontally with data. This time I need to go vertically:

Output would look like:

Category     Jan-14    Feb-14   Mar-14   Apr-14 (through months entered for current year)   Average
Cat 1             98.7           95.5       87.7        98.8                                                                                    95.18              
Cat 2             89.5           97.5       90.25      95.2                                                                                    93.11
Cat 3             98.7           95.5       87.7        98.8                                                                                    95.18  
Cat 4             89.5           97.5       90.25      95.2                                                                                    93.11  

Looking for some reading to learn how to do this loop (vertically) and do the average based on the months entered.

Database fields are:
ID
Month
Year
Cat 1
Cat 2
Cat 3
Cat 4
