clarity is always of great help and if you could post the scripts along with your so called query we would be able to figure out what you require.

if it's always just 2 values (i.e. you will not need other distinct col4 values to be displayed as col6, col7 etc), and values in col4 can be ordered, try something like this:

select col1, col2, col3, min(col4) as col4, max(col4) as col5
from my_table_name
group by col1, col2, col3

If you would like to display more than 2 values, then aggregate all values for col4 in that column (for example, build a comma separated list of col4 values). This page should give you some hints how to do that:
