Please, please, please, tell us what the error is. And show which line of code it occurs on.

Google how to convert rows into columns. Or the other approach would be to concatenate rows together.

Take a look at the GROUP_CONCAT function: SQLite group_concat() function - w3resource[^]

"select  id,max( case when name = 'tree' then name end) as name1,max(case when name = 'rose' then name end ) as name2 from table_name group by id";
