There are several ways that you can transform data from multiple rows into columns. In SQL Server you can use the PIVOT function to transform the data from rows to columns:

Example: > > select Firstname, Amount, PostalCode, LastName, AccountNumber
select value, columnname
from yourtable
) d
for columnname in (Firstname, Amount, PostalCode, LastName, AccountNumber)
) piv;
