"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

do something like this:

declare @list varchar(1000)

select @list = @list + emailaddress + ';' from table1

set @list = substring(@list,1, (len(@list) - 1))

no go

declare @list varchar(1000)

select @list = @list + p_emailaddress + ';' from Purge_Email

set @list = substring(@list,1, (len(@list) - 1))

it should have returned 4 records

declare @list varchar(1000)
select @list = Coalesce(@list + ', ', '') + p_emailaddress
from purge_email where charindex('input_output',P_customer)> 0
select @list

Almost works but not giving distinct
DonKronosCommented:
declare @list varchar(1000)
select @list = Coalesce(@list + ', ', '') + distinctaddr.p_emailaddress
from (select distinct p_emailaddress from purge_email where charindex('input_output',P_customer)> 0) as distinctaddr
select @list
