Thanks Greg. Peter's solution is working for me, but I appreciate the input.

When I tried your method I got an error. I realize I'm using SQL Server 2008 SSMS but I'm connecting to a 2005 database. Perhaps that has something to do with it...

Msg 325, Level 15, State 1, Line 22
Incorrect syntax near 'UNPIVOT'. You may need to set the compatibility level of the current database to a higher value to enable this feature. See help for the stored procedure sp_dbcmptlevel.

Ah, yes. I was about 20 minutes from walking out the door when I read your post yesterday, and did not read it closely enough. I did not realize you are on 2005, so you will have to stick with Peter's solution (which is better anyway). I just realized my solution neglects your last set of criteria anyway. I probably should not have posted it.

Greg
