If your requirement is mapping values by collating sequence in each id(group), try this.
(I tested this on my DB2 UDB for Windows V7.2)



SELECT * FROM Agr_test;
 

ID VALUE
------ -----

   123 abc
   123 cde
   123 xxx
   456 abc
   456 fgh
   789 cde
   789 ijk
   789 lmn  



SELECT id
      ,max(CASE WHEN rownum = 1 THEN value ELSE NULL END) AS Value1
      ,max(CASE WHEN rownum = 2 THEN value ELSE NULL END) AS Value2
      ,max(CASE WHEN rownum = 3 THEN value ELSE NULL END) AS Value3
  FROM (SELECT id
              ,value
              ,rownumber() over(partition by id order by value)
          FROM Agr_test
       ) AS Q (id, value, rownum)

 GROUP BY id
;
 

ID VALUE1 VALUE2 VALUE3
------ ------ ------ ------

   123 abc cde xxx
   456 abc fgh -
   789 cde ijk lmn Received on Thu May 23 2002 - 04:03:04 CDT
