This operation is called matrix transposition in algebra. Since you specified only SQL-Server in the tags, I looked on google T-SQL solutions, but there are many approaches:
- Generic approach: http://www.extensionmethod.net/Details.aspx?ID=152[^]
- ASP.NET sample: Transpose a DataTable using C#[^], http://codemaverick.blogspot.hu/2008/02/transpose-datagrid-or-gridview-by.html[^]
- T-SQL: http://sqlandme.com/2011/04/20/tsql-transpose-data-using-using-pivot-and-unpivot/[^]
