Hello Experts Exchange
I have a SQL Server Reporting Services report that has a dataset with several columns, I want these columns going down as rows on the left hand side in a table, and my data from the columns going across by date.

My Columns are called;
TA_Date
TA_Notes_50
TA_Notes_20
TA_Notes_10

What are the steps required to do this?

Regards

It's seems that you want to unpivot the data.

Like convert column to row.

If this is the case you can use the concept of pivot and unpivot in sql server it self.

It would be great if you post some example data and the expected output.

And in the data part of the martix i have used the list control.
Delete the row group from the list and add three row in it.
This list will in the data part of matrix.

In those three rows in list select the filed from the data as per your req.

Refer the screen shot

2016-09-23_16-33-25.png

In the row part again add the list.

Hello Arif
I have been able to get it running but I can not work out what you have done.

I have the date in the Columns field and inserted a list in the data field, but I can not insert a new row into the list.

How do I do that?
