Hi to all

is it any ready made function in sql (string.format in c#)
so we can use easily concate strings in select query insted of using (+)

No, SQL Server does not have an equivalent. There is a FORMAT function in SQL 2012, but that is not equivalent to the string.format in C#. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh213505.aspx

But there is a CONCAT function, which is as close as you can get, but still not as flexible as String.format: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh231515.aspx
