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

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.)
