Nice and fast way for reporting
Many times, we need to show some reports such as Department Wise Expense, or Subject wise marks of students where department and subject are stored in rows and we are to show all these as Columns. In all these situations, we can use SQL Pivoting.

For example, for Department Wise expense:

Suppose we store expenses as:

Dept ExDate       expense
A   |  12 Jan |  10000
A   |  15 Jan |   9000
B   |  02 Feb |   8000
C   |  02 Feb |   8000
A   |  05 Feb |  10000
C   |  12 Feb |   8000

select ExDate, [A] as 'Store A Expense', [B] as 'Store B Expense', [C] as 'Store C Expense' from
select * from expenseTable
) ExpenseData
    sum(expense) for Dept in ([A],[B],[C]) 
)as FinalData

You can find one more detailed script here[^].
