Sounds like homework.

If not, please provide sample data, expected result and what you've tried so far as described in the first link in my signature.

You don't have to provide your real data. Get the basic concept and transform it into a sample table with fake column names and fake values. But make sure it represents what you're struggling with.

Please remember we don't see what you see. So you have to help us help you.
