SQL - separating columns into rows

Last Modified: 2020-03-02
I need consolidate columns from a table.  I have a table will 3 group id and attribute id columns.  I need to create a separate record for each group of  attribute groups and attribute ids.  Basically, i need a table with just one column for the attribute group and ID.  

Table A:

RecID        GroupID     AttributeID        GroupID1     AttributeID1    GroupID2     AttributeID 2
-------      ---------      -----------         ----------      -------------    ----------     --------------
1                Cars             100                    Doors            134                   Sinks            499
2                Filters           450                    Paint             344                            

Expected Results:

RecID        GroupID     AttributeID        
-------      ---------      -----------  
1                Cars             100                    
1                Doors           134
1                Sinks            499
2                Filters           450                  
2                Paint             344
