yes, you can use case or if to pull the data out.
There is no pivot table as in built in mechanism.


select column
if column reference check, value as column reference,
if column reference1 check, value as column reference1,
if column reference2 check, value as column reference2,

group by ...

if you post sample data, ............

If I am not mistaken, pivot deals with extracting data in rows and displaying them in columns/

id, type, value
type can be  type1,type2,type3

the pivot would make
id type1 value ,type2 value ,type3 value

can you post an actual data sample

lets say you have

zipcode1,order1,customer1,product1,12
zipcode2,order2,customer2,product1,13

you want the result to be
product1,zipcode1,zipcode2,25

select productid, zipcode as "zipcode",sum(quantity) from tablename group by productid

The attempt is to convert the value in zipcode to be made the column name using the as.
