Hello everyone,

This is the requirement,I have a table like this below :

Actual table: Item_Seller

item_id |seller_name

12310451 |
12310452 |

12310691 |
12310691 |Pro Team
12310692 |

The requirement is to concatenate seller_name in the table like below output, this should not be performed using a stored procedure. I need help in writing a select query to display the below output.

item_id |seller_name_concat

can you try this
SELECT item_id,
MAX(CASE WHEN rk = 1 THEN seller_name END) AS value1,
MAX(CASE WHEN rk = 2 THEN seller_name END) AS value2
into #temp1
FROM (SELECT item_id, seller_name,
order by item_id) AS rk
FROM item_seller) AS A
GROUP BY item_id
select item_id,value1+','+value2 as concat_seller from #temp1
drop table #temp1
