Sql – Unpivot with column name

sqlsql-serversql-server-2008tsqlunpivot

I have a table StudentMarks with columns Name, Maths, Science, English.
Data is like

Name,  Maths, Science, English  
Tilak, 90,    40,      60  
Raj,   30,    20,      10

I want to get it arranged like the following:

Name,  Subject,  Marks
Tilak, Maths,    90
Tilak, Science,  40
Tilak, English,  60

With unpivot I am able to get Name, Marks properly, but not able to get the column name in the source table to the Subject column in the desired result set.

How can I achieve this?

I have so far reached the following query (to get Name, Marks)

select Name, Marks from studentmarks
Unpivot
(
  Marks for details in (Maths, Science, English)

) as UnPvt

Best Solution

Your query is very close. You should be able to use the following which includes the subject in the final select list:

select u.name, u.subject, u.marks
from student s
unpivot
(
  marks
  for subject in (Maths, Science, English)
) u;
