The TRANSFORM/PIVOT syntax doesn't exist in ANSI SQL and is maybe
unique to Microsoft Access.

The get the same result with MySQL, you have to do build up a quite
complicated query.

First, you've to check out how many and which values the pivot field
Wedstrijd.Datum does have, as you want to create a result column for
each of these.

Let's assume, Wedstrijd.Datum only takes the values '1999-09-27' and

The query will look like this:

     , WedstrijdNr
     , ...someterm1... AS 1999_09_27
     , ...someterm2... AS 1999_09_28
FROM   Wedstrijd
       , WedstrijdNr

Note: I'm using underscores in the column aliases, because otherwise
they wouldn't be legal alias names.

BTW, it's not possible (without a ridiculous complicated query) to get
the total sum Sum(Wedstrijd.Punten) at the same time, so just do that
in a seperate query.  Now back to the main query ...

In ...someterm1... we want to sum-up the field Punten, but only for
rows with Datum='1999-09-27'.  Rows with other date values are to be
ignored, and this can be accomplised if we sum-up numerical 0 (which
doesn't change the sum) or NULL (which is ignored) for such rows:

   SUM( IF(Datum='1999-09-27', Punten, NULL) )

Analogous for ...someterm2...

So the final query is:

     , WedstrijdNr
     , SUM( IF(Datum='1999-09-27', Punten, NULL) ) AS 1999_09_27
     , SUM( IF(Datum='1999-09-28', Punten, NULL) ) AS 1999_09_28
FROM   Wedstrijd
       , WedstrijdNr
