e.g. table values:
cGroup  cText

A           M
B           V

select cGroup, concat(cText) as cTextConcat
from myTable

you cannot do it without using a UDF (function)....

create function dbo.ConcatText ( @Group varchar(10))
returns varchar(100)
as
begin
  declare @res
  set @res = ''
  select @res = @res + cText From myTable where cGroup = @group order by cText
  return @res
end

and use it like this:

select cGroup, dbo.ConcatText(cGroup) cTextConcat
from myTable
group by cGroup
