    Yes using STUFF we can achieve this, refer below sample query for your reference

    WITH tempTable AS
    SELECT ID FROM Tablename

    SELECT t.ID, Name= STUFF((SELECT ',' + Name FROM Tablename tn WHERE tn.ID = t.ID FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '')
    FROM tempTable t;

    Hope this helps you....

    Hi Naveen,

    I tried that query and getting error like Syntax Error near XML. Am using SQL SERVER 2003

    I feel SQL SERVER 2003 version support STUFF.
    Try the below code.

    SELECT Id,
    Stuff((SELECT ', ' + code
    FROM tblmta t2
    WHERE t2.Id = t1.Id
    FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 2, '') [Name]
    FROM tblmta t1 GROUP BY ID
