Retrieve a Concatenated String from One Column of a Table Without Using the Cursor

Sometimes, you need to retrieve a concatenated string from one column of a table without using the cursor. To do this, you can use string aggregation. Here’s how:

  1. Create & fill the table using this script:
    --Create Table Cust(CustID int,CustName varchar(20))Insert into Cust Values(1,'Rohit')Insert into Cust Values(2,'Amit')Insert into Cust Values(3,'Sumit')Insert into Cust Values(3,'Punit')
  2. Execute this script:
    Declare @Names Varchar(2000)Select @Names=Isnull(@Names+','+CustName,CustName)From CustSelect @Names
  3. You will get this result:
    Rohit,Amit,Sumit,Punit(1 row(s) affected)
