Hi, all. As a simplified example, I have two tables. Table1 has a list of devices. Table2 contains two pieces of information per device, but in the same column. Here it is in a nutshell:

tblDevice: DeviceID, DeviceName

tblDevInfo: DeviceID, InfoType, InfoValue

Out of all the tblDevInfo.InfoTypes, I only need two, [IPAddress] and [SerialNum]. But, the output needs to be one row per device, as follows:

DeviceID | DeviceName | IPAddress | SerialNum
1 | ABC | 192.168.5.177 | A9723UJ
2 | DEF | 192.168.5.108 | JF98U2O
3 | USD | 192.168.5.116 | XO8F92

How do I obtain MULTIPLE columns from values in a SINGLE column?

something like this:



DECLARE @tblDevice TABLE(DeviceID INT, DeviceName VARCHAR(20));
INSERT INTO @tblDevice VALUES
(1, 'ABC'),
(2, 'DEF'),
(3, 'USD');

DECLARE @tblDeviceInfo TABLE(DeviceID INT,  InfoType VARCHAR(100), InfoVal INT);
INSERT INTO @tblDeviceInfo VALUES
(1, 'ABC-192.168.5.177-A9723UJ-XYZ', 100),
(2, 'DEF-192.168.5.108-JF98U2O-XYZ', 100),
(3, 'USD-192.168.5.116-JF98U2O-XYZ', 100);



 SELECT a.DeviceID, a.DeviceName, SUBSTRING(InfoType, 5,13) as IPAddress, 
	SUBSTRING(InfoType, 19, 7) as SerialNum from 
	@tblDevice a inner join @tblDeviceInfo b on a.DeviceID = b.DeviceID;

I think this as per Ops description


SELECT d.DeviceID,
d.DeviceName,
di.IPAddress,
di.SerialNum
FROM tblDevice d
INNER JOIN (
            SELECT DeviceID,
            MAX(CASE WHEN InfoType = 'IPAddress' THEN InfoValue END) AS [IPAddress],
            MAX(CASE WHEN InfoType = 'SerialNum' THEN InfoValue END) AS [SerialNum]
            FROM tblDevInfo
            GROUP BY DeviceID
           )di
ON di.DeviceID = d.DeviceID
