Hi There,

this is my first entry in this forum so lets say "Hello" to you all :-)
For the beginning I have a question to you which makes me desperate.

This ist what I have:
(1 table,3 colums)
ID NAME VALUE
1 Colour green
1 Material paper
1 Vendor ZZZ
2 Colour red

Now this should look like this:
ID ATTRIBUTES
1 Colour|green;Material|paper;Vendor|ZZZ
2 Colour|red

So if anyone of you have a hint for me how I could make this in a sql statement please tell me.

Thanks a lot
Michael

select	ID, ATTRIBUTES = MAX(STUFF(ATTRIBUTES, 1, 1, ''))
from	table1 t
	cross apply
	(
		select	';' + NAME + '|' + VALUE
		from	table1 x
		where	x.ID = t.ID
		for xml path('')
	) a (ATTRIBUTES)
group by ID

SELECT DISTINCT T2.ID
, (SELECT STUFF((SELECT ','+CAST(Name AS VARCHAR)+' | '+CAST(Value AS VARCHAR)
FROM (SELECT Name,Value FROM Tem25 AS T1
WHERE T1.Id = T2.Id)x
ORDER BY Name,Value
FOR XML PATH('')),1,1,'')) AS 'Description'
FROM Tem25 AS T2
