Query to convert colums to row

Last Modified: 2015-10-22
Hello,

I have a table that looks like:

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[SKRS_OriginalData](

    .........

	[Atgard1] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard2] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard3] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard4] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard5] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard6] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard7] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard8] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard9] [int] NULL,
	[Atgard10] [int] NULL,

    ........

) 

Open in new window


I want to extract all the rows and  create a result that lists all the values in columns Atgard1 to Atgard10 as a single column called Atgard.


So 

1,2,3,4,5,,,,,,
6,7,8,,,,,,,,
9,,,,,,,,,,

should become

1,
2,
3,
4,
5,
6,
7,
8,
9,

Open in new window


All the nulls should be excluded.

Is this some type of unpivot?
