CREATE TABLE [dbo].[mike_inventory](
[itemid] [int] NULL,
[location] [varchar](50) NULL



insert into mike_inventory values (10131,'Row A')
insert into mike_inventory values (10131,'Row B')
insert into mike_inventory values (10132,'Row B')
insert into mike_inventory values (10132,'Row C')
insert into mike_inventory values (10133,'Row A')
insert into mike_inventory values (10133,'Row D')
insert into mike_inventory values (10134,'Row A')
insert into mike_inventory values (10134,'Row E')



I want my output to look like this


Itemid Location1 Location2 Location3
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10131 ROW A ROW B
10132 ROW B ROW C
10133 ROW A ROW D
10134 ROW A ROW E






Is this possible?

Maybe something along these lines will help




;WITH cte AS
(
SELECT itemid ,
location ,
ROW_NUMBER()OVER( PARTITION BY itemid ORDER BY itemid) RN
FROM mike_inventory
)
SELECT itemid,
MAX(CASE WHEN rn = 1 THEN LOCATION ELSE NULL END) AS LOC1,
MAX(CASE WHEN RN = 2 THEN LOCATION ELSE NULL END) AS LOC2
FROM CTE
GROUP BY itemid
ORDER BY itemid

To see how the query that JLS wrote works, please see the following article.
http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic935472-392-1.aspx


To learn how to do the same in a dynamic condition where the column names aren't always known at design time, please see the following article.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
