BBB              1-1-2020              40

CCC             1-1-2020              80

CCC             3-1-2020              30

CCC             4-1-2020              50

And I need get this:

                1-1-2020     2-1-2020      3-1-2020       4-1-2020

AAA               10                20

    Start by reading this in the FAQ

    That should solve your issue.

    Pivot is solution assuming you know all dates upfront or at least max possible number of distinct dates.

    Column names have to be known at compile time, before any data is retrieved.  That means the column names can't depend on data in the table, so if you really want column names like "1-1-2020", you need Dynamic SQL.

    For a work-around (including the case Solomon mentioned i reply #2, where you don't know how many distinct dates there are) seePIVOT SQL

    Read the link on --> and answer questions #5 through #9

    And CHANGE the subject of your thread based on request #2 from the link above (I posted below).  This is not a paid-service.

    2) Thread Subject lineGive your thread a meaningful subject, not just "help please", "Query help" or "SQL". This is the SQL and PL/SQL forum. We know your question is going to be about those things, make it meaningful to the type of question so that people with the right sort of knowledge can pick it up and those without can ignore it. Never, EVER, mark your subject as "URGENT" or "ASAP".  This forum is manned by volunteers giving their own time to help and your question is never urgent or more important than their own work or than other people's questions. It may be urgent to you, but that's not forum members issue.  By marking your question as urgent you are actually less likely to get a good response, as members will choose to ignore such questions or respond unfavorably.
