Also, your code won't work as is when run on a system using a case sensitive collation.

Here is my code:


select distinct
reportID,
RoleID,
stuff((select ', ' + t2.User2
from #tbl t2
where t2.reportID = t1.reportID and t2.RoleID = t1.RoleID
for xml path('')),1,2,'') as List
from #tbl t1;

Would the 'into #tbl ' above suffice? I wanted to be consistent with the #tbl referenced in the CTE query.


It works, just not the way you should do it. It would be better to separate your DDL from the load of your data.

Thank you so much. That works beautifully.

I'm not familiar with XML. Could you point me to some additional resources so that I can understand what your code actually does?

Thanks again.

Not that familiar myself, just something I picked up here on SSC. Hopefully someone else reading this thread can provide you with a link. I'd have to do some searching and I am getting ready to leave to watch (yes watch, not ref) a soccer game.
