It CAN be done in SQL 2005.

Not the simplest coding, but not the most difficult, either.
You can get your list into a single string by using FOR XML and cross apply.

Here's an example. (assume a table SupplierProducts with two fields, Supplier and Product. Each supplier can have one or more products.

select distinct supplier, left(o.list, len(o.list) -1)
from SupplierProducts c
cross apply
select Products + ', ' AS [text()] from code c2
where c.supplier = c2.supplier
for xml path('')
) o(list)
