There is a table with the following fields:
Usercode is a varchar fields whereas the other fields are integrers.

Let's say this is what the table contains at present:

id year Usercode A2 A3 B2 B3

1 2005 2BM 12 7 9 11
2 2002 BB1 87 98 4 32
3 1999 3NS 45 32 88 12

The question is, how can I produce something like the following table using the above table:
The idea is to show the final table (at the very bottom) on a web page. So I am thinking if I get the table right in sql server then the rest is fine.


A2 12 87 45
A3 7 98 32
B2 9 4 88
B3 11 32 12

Since I am using sql server 2000, I do not think I can use something like the pivot sql functionality as sql 2005 allows.
In addition to the above I would like to go one step further to have a sql to produce the following result (Notice the extra texts):


user info
positive nums
A2 12 87 45
yesterdays info
negative values
A3 7 98 32
contact manage
B2 9 4 88
contact method
B3 11 32 12

Can't you do this in your front end application ? SQL Server is for data storage and not meant for Formatting and Presentation of data.
