I am sorry, but I don't see what you problem is, what error you have etc.
Can you precise more, because the comment mentionnes a table #b which I don't see where it comes from and what it has to do with the "question"...

current result of above query is
",afds"
i need it to be
",a,afds"


@#b table. i can do it with temporary table table with distinct values from table #a.
----
select "id"=cast('a' as varchar(10)) into #a
insert into #a values ( 'afds')
insert into #a values ( 'a')
select distinct * into #b from #a
declare @text varchar (1000)
set @text=''
select distinct @text= @text +',' + id from #b order by id
select @text

ok, now I got it.

Instead of SELECT DISTINCT use GROUP BY

select "id"=cast('a' as varchar(10)) into #a
insert into #a values ( 'afds')
insert into #a values ( 'a')
declare @text varchar (1000)
set @text=''
select  @text= @text +',' + id from #a group by id order by id
select @text
