I have 2 tables
1. tblENQUIRY and
2. tblENQUIRY_FOLLOW_UP

The history contains the PK ENQUIRY_ID from the  tblENQUIRY

 tblENQUIRY tblENQUIRY_FOLLOW_UP SAMPLE DATA IN FOLLOW UP
What I need to do is create a new table with the 2 columns
ENQUIRY_ID and ENQ_FU_COMMENT

for each ENQUIRY_ID concatenate all of the individual lines in just one line.

like this ...
 what it should look like
I really appreciate help on this.

My solution does not work correctly.

best regards

Hi,

Check this.
Select 
	[Enquiry_ID],
	(Stuff((Select ', ' + ENQ_FU_COMMENT From tblEnquiry_Follow_Up E2 Where E1.Enquiry_ID = E2.Enquiry_ID FOR XML PATH('')),1,2,'')) as ENQ_FU_COMMENT
From tblEnquiry E1
Order By Enquiry_ID
