I have data in a table in following way:
Dept ==== Deptno Dname 10 aaa 20 bbb 30 ccc 40 ddd
With the help of an SQL query, I need the result in the following way:
Depno 10 20 30 40 Dname aaa bbb ccc ddd
I am using ORALCE 8.1.7 on Sun 2.0.8
The following script will pivot table t as you requested:
Create table t (Deptno integer, Dname char(5)); insert into t values (10,'aaa'); insert into t values (20,'bbb'); insert into t values (30,'ccc'); insert into t values (40,'ddd'); select max (decode (Deptno,10,to_char(Deptno),null)) as f1, max (decode (Deptno,20,to_char(Deptno),null)) as f2, max (decode (Deptno,30,to_char(Deptno),null)) as f3, max (decode (Deptno,40,to_char(Deptno),null)) as f4 from t union all select max (decode (Deptno,10,Dname,null)) as f1, max (decode (Deptno,20,Dname,null)) as f2, max (decode (Deptno,30,Dname,null)) as f3, max (decode (Deptno,40,Dname,null)) as f4 from t;
