Advanced SQL (programming) videos | SQL Programming Part 18 - Dynamic Pivot Tables
Posted by Andrew Gould on 13 October 2014
The most annoying part of creating a pivot table in Microsoft SQL Server is listing out the column headings for the table. This video explains how to use dynamic SQL so you no longer have to repeat this laborious task. The video includes a quick recap of basic pivot tables, how to use the QuoteName function to generate a list of column headings, how to build an SQL statement and store it as a string of text and, finally, how to execute the dynamic SQL string.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
