Hi experts below is my original data
cust    code1   code2  tex1   tex2
 
123       1              2        Y       N

And I need to get results like this

cust    code    text
123      1           Y
123       2          N


But with my below query I am getting results as shown after query, please suggest

SELECT  Distinct
                           Customer_No,
                           Code,
                           TextMessage
     FROM   (SELECT DISTINCT
                 Customer_no,
                 Code1,Code2, text1,text2)                
          FROM   #final ) AS p UNPIVOT ( Code  For
         Col1  IN (Code1,Code2) ) AS unpvt1
         UNPIVOT ( TextMessage  For
         Col2  IN (text1,text2) ) AS unpvt2
       -- ) AS unpvt3
        where Right(Col1,1)=Right(col2,1)


cust     code  text
123        1        Y
123        1        N

PIVOT is so MS-centric (and somewhat convoluted), so in this case personally I'd just use CROSS APPLY:


SELECT
    cust,
    Code,
    Text
FROM #final
CROSS APPLY (
    SELECT Code1 AS Code, Text1 AS Text
    UNION ALL
    SELECT Code2, Text2
) AS ca
ORDER BY
    cust, code

Any chance you can post the real query.  Your results did not come from this query.  It does not even compile.

But I suspect this is what you are looking for:
SELECT  cust,
        code,
        [text]
FROM    (
	SELECT	cust,
               code1,
               code2,
               text1,
               text2
       FROM	final) f 
	UNPIVOT ( Code FOR Codes IN (code1, code2) ) u1 
	UNPIVOT ( [Text] FOR Texts IN (text1, text2) ) u2
WHERE   RIGHT(Codes, 1) = RIGHT(Texts, 1)

This is how I tested it:
DECLARE @final TABLE(cust integer, code1 integer, code2 integer, text1 char(1), text2 char(1))
INSERT @final (cust, code1, code2, text1, text2)
VALUES  (123, 1, 2, 'Y', 'N')

SELECT  cust,
        code,
        [text]
FROM    (
	SELECT	cust,
               code1,
               code2,
               text1,
               text2
       FROM	@final) f 
		UNPIVOT ( Code FOR Codes IN (code1, code2) ) u1 
		UNPIVOT ( [Text] FOR Texts IN (text1, text2) ) u2
WHERE   RIGHT(Codes, 1) = RIGHT(Texts, 1) 

Open in new window

And here is the output:
cust	code	text
123	1	Y
123	2	N

>>"PIVOT is so MS-centric (and somewhat convoluted), so in this case personally I'd just use CROSS APPLY:"

PIVOT &/or UNPIVOT are used by more than one dbms vendor but I know of only MS who uses "apply" cross or outer; so I can't think of a more MS centric approach than cross apply

However I agree, I much prefer the directness of using CROSS APPLY for unpivots.

A small variation is to use VALUES where you can literally "see" the layout
SELECT
      cust
    , ca.Code
    , ca.Text
FROM #final
      CROSS APPLY (
            VALUES
                    (Code1, Text1)
                  , (Code2, Text2)
                  ) AS ca (Code, Text)
ORDER BY
      cust, code
