Hi ,

start with this article http://www.simple-talk.com/sql/t-sql-programming/concatenating-row-values-in-transact-sql/.

I would advise against using a scalar function and create a inline table function for perfomance reasons

if object_id('dbo.tmpTable') is not null
drop table dbo.tmpTable
go
create table dbo.tmpTable(Slno int, ParentId int, Leg int, Orign char(1), Dest char(1))
insert into dbo.tmpTable
select 1, 1, 1, 'V', 'X'
union all select 2, 1, 2, 'X','Y'
union all select 3, 1, 3, 'Y','Z'
go

--when you can use Leg as the order
declare @concat nvarchar(max)
select @concat=coalesce(@concat,Orign)+'-'+Dest
from dbo.tmpTable where Parentid=1 order by Leg
select @concat

--or order is not known:

if object_id('dbo.fn_GetTripDetails') is not null
drop function dbo.fn_GetTripDetails
go
create function dbo.fn_GetTripDetails(@ParentID int)
returns nvarchar(max)
as
begin
declare @concat nvarchar(max)

;with Tab ([Concat],[Last],lvl)
as
(select convert(nvarchar(max),Orign+'-'+Dest),Dest,0 as lvl
from dbo.tmpTable t1 where ParentId=@ParentID and not exists
(select * from dbo.tmpTable t2 where t1.Orign=t2.Dest and t1.ParentiD=t2.ParentID)
union all
select [Concat]+'-'+t2.Dest,t2.dest,t.lvl+1
from Tab t
inner join dbo.TmpTable t2
on t.Last=t2.Orign
and t2.ParentiD=@ParentID
)
select top 1 @concat=[Concat] from Tab order by lvl desc;
RETURN @concat
end
go

select dbo.fn_GetTripDetails(1)
