Gridview display results issue (show multiple record results in a single gridview column)

I really don't know how to ask this question so I will attempt to describe what I am needing to do. Say I have 300 units of Item A that ship in 4 different Boxes and 200 Units of Item B that ship in one box My search results would return 5 rows one for each box. This is how my gridview currently acts

Item Name           Box #
   A                        987
   A                        654
   A                        321
   A                        573
   B                        275

However this is how I would like it to display

Item Name          Box #
      A                   987, 654, 321, 573
      B                    275

is this possible and if so how do I get it to look like this (also each box number would be a link to the shipping information for that box)

maybe I don't understand or maybe I did not make it clear but the information I am getting from the database are in two different tables (don't know if this makes a difference) and would it seems to me that the code you linked to would still give me five records returned instead of only two
David RobitailleAnalyst ProgrammerCommented:
no if you do it correctly, it would return 2 row.
It<s a long time i did not do this. I would suggest that you use the request for attention button to ask a moderator to add the "SQL Syntax" Zone and the database type you use (mysql, ms SQL server, oracle etc.)
