Need a challenging SELECT statement

Need a challenging SELECT statement

Need a challenging SELECT statement

I need a particular select statement.

I am querying a 3rd party database. Sample columns are shown below. As you can see, there are several rows of data for each TRANS_ID. They are using the STRING_VALUE column to store various things, depending on the NAME value.

I need a select statement that does the following--

Within a given TRANS_DATE range,
for each TRANS_ID,
in the case where NAME = 'computed.call_zone' and STRING_VALUE = 'international'

I need to return the following values:

The STRING_VALUE for when NAME = 'item.dialed-number'
The STRING_VALUE for when NAME = 'computed.rounded_duration'

TRANS_ID   TRANS_DATE   AMOUNT    NAME                                  STRING_VALUE  
----------     --------------      ----------    ---------------------------         ----------------     
130059      2006-05-01        0.355000    computed.call_zone               international       
130059      2006-05-01        0.355000    default.product_code             Phone                
130059      2006-05-01        0.355000    computed.billing_rate            NULL                 
130059      2006-05-01        0.355000    computed.rounded_duration   1.000000                
130059      2006-05-01        0.355000    item.dialed-number               0018204706294#
130060 ...  etc.
