    Hi anonymous user-6983 ,
    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thankyou for posting your query.

    As I understand your query here, you want to convert data from rows into columns . Please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

    For this purpose, you can make use of Pivot transformation in ADF mapping dataflow which is used to create multiple columns from the unique row values of a single column. Pivot is an aggregation transformation where you select group by columns and generate pivot columns using aggregate functions.

    Please refer to the following video for the implementation part:

    Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
