    GROUP BY in SQL Query

    I have SQL value like:

    BandName Style
    Band-1 A1
    Band-2 A2
    Band-2 A3
    Band-2 A4
    Band-3 A5
    Band-4 A6

    My desired Output is:

    BandName Style
    Band-1 A1
    Band-2 A2/A3/A4
    Band-3 A5
    Band-4 A6

    Please tell me how can I write a SQL Query for my desired output.

    Hi Ram Prasad,

    Try below query and see if this is the one you are looking for. Let me know if this doesn't help or you are searching for something else.

    SELECT BandName, Style =
    STUFF((SELECT ', ' + Style
    FROM your_table b
    WHERE b.BandName = a.BandName
    FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 2, '')
    FROM tblName a
    GROUP BY BandName

    Try below one

    DECLARE @Table1 TABLE(BandName varchar(10), Style varchar(10))
    INSERT INTO @Table1 VALUES ('Band-1',' A1'),('Band-2',' A2'),('Band-2',' A3'),('Band-2',' A4'),('Band-3',' A5'),('Band-4',' A6')

    SELECT BandName
    ,STUFF((SELECT '/ ' + CAST(Style AS VARCHAR(10)) [text()]
    FROM @Table1
    WHERE BandName = t.BandName
    .value('.','NVARCHAR(MAX)'),1,2,' ') Style
    FROM @Table1 t
    GROUP BY BandName
