I have a SQL query that I cannot post so I am looking for an example or direction if you can help please. We have a dataset / datasource that has month over month to year over year data. We need to be able to allow a user to pick a date range and the SQL build a Pivot Table that dynamically builds the Pivot table based on their selection. I heard rumor that this might be possible with a variable driven by parameters? Can any one describe demonstrate point to video/illustrate or have all 3 pieces of information that might help me accomplish this.

So the user picks a date range say 6/1/2019 to 6/1/2021
The SQL Pivot builds a series of columns that show the data related to the dates below.
Jun-19, Jul-19, Aug-19, ....... Jun-20, Jul-20, Aug-20, ....... Apr-21, May-21, Jun-21

Is this even possible. If not please let me know. Thank you.
