Hi, I have a table similar to the one below, I need to unpivot the table to that there would be 4 column, and a row would look like
The other issue, I'm facing is that there is an unknown number of rows, so I will somehow have to create a dynamic comma delimited list of column names from the table.
If anyone has a script to do this would be super appreciated!
~thank you in advance

PeriodType, PeriodValue, AgentNo, Metric, Value
Year           2014           EY57627   Metric1  1833
Year           2014           EY57627   Metric2   609.87
Year           2014           EY57627   Metric3   0.804878

     IF OBJECT_ID('TempDB..#mytable','U') IS NOT NULL
         DROP TABLE #mytable

--===== Create the test table with 
 CREATE TABLE #mytable 
        (
        PeriodType Varchar(50),
        PeriodValue varchar(50),
        AgentNo varchar(10),
        Metric1 varchar(50),
        Metric2 varchar(50),
        Metric3 varchar(50)
        )
       
       insert into #mytable 
       (PeriodType, PeriodValue, AgentNo, Metric1, Metric2, Metric3)

Ok, I came across this script below, but I am getting the following error, is there any way to resolve this?

Query generated:

SELECT *
FROM dbo.t_OutlierCalc_BM
UNPIVOT (
    value FOR code IN (
        [PeriodType], [PeriodValue], [emp_no], [CallsHandled], [AverageHandlingTime], [CsatTop2], [CsatBottom2], [ResolutionTop2], [ResolutionBottom2], [FCR_7], [FCR_7_WithTransfer]
    )
) unpiv

Open in new window


The type of column "PeriodValue" conflicts with the type of other columns specified in the UNPIVOT list.

DECLARE @table_name SYSNAME
SELECT @table_name = 'dbo.t_OutlierCalc_BM'
 
DECLARE @SQL NVARCHAR(MAX)
SELECT @SQL = '
SELECT *
FROM ' + @table_name + '
UNPIVOT (
    value FOR code IN (
        ' + STUFF((
    SELECT ', [' + c.name + ']'
    FROM sys.columns c WITH(NOLOCK)
    LEFT JOIN (
        SELECT i.[object_id], i.column_id
        FROM sys.index_columns i WITH(NOLOCK)
        WHERE i.index_id = 1
    ) i ON c.[object_id] = i.[object_id] AND c.column_id = i.column_id
    WHERE c.[object_id] = OBJECT_ID(@table_name)
        AND i.[object_id] IS NULL
    FOR XML PATH(''), TYPE).value('.', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)'), 1, 2, '') + '
    )
) unpiv'
 
PRINT @SQL
EXEC sys.sp_executesql @SQL

I fixed your code. Please note that I have adjusted it for TempDB..#myTable. Remove TempDB from sys.columns and sys.index_columns for your database:
SELECT *
FROM #mytable
UNPIVOT (
    value FOR code IN (
        [Metric1], [Metric2], [Metric3]
    )
) unpiv
                                          
DECLARE @table_name SYSNAME
SELECT @table_name = 'TempDB..#mytable'
 
DECLARE @SQL NVARCHAR(MAX)
SELECT @SQL = '
SELECT *
FROM ' + @table_name + '
UNPIVOT (
    value FOR code IN (
        ' + STUFF((
    SELECT ', [' + c.name + ']'
    FROM TempDB.sys.columns c WITH(NOLOCK)
    LEFT JOIN (
        SELECT i.[object_id], i.column_id
        FROM TempDB.sys.index_columns i WITH(NOLOCK)
        WHERE i.index_id = 1
    ) i ON c.[object_id] = i.[object_id] AND c.column_id = i.column_id
    WHERE c.[object_id] = OBJECT_ID('TempDB..#mytable')
        AND i.[object_id] IS NULL
		AND c.name NOT IN('PeriodType', 'PeriodValue', 'AgentNo')
    FOR XML PATH(''), TYPE).value('.', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)'), 1, 2, '') + '
    )
) unpiv'
 
PRINT @SQL
EXEC sys.sp_executesql @SQL
