Hi,
we have created a view that shows info from many different tables joined together. the output look like this
SELECT * from view_Analysts
AS-IS result:
id  date              analyst  type    
1   10/10/2009   Smith     Lunch  
1   10/10/2009   Hall        Lunch  
2   12/11/2009   Smith     Lunch
3   13/11/2009   Jackson Group
3   13/11/2009   Harris     Group

TO-BE result
id  date              analyst              type
1   10/10/2009   Smith+Hall         Lunch
2   12/11/2009   Smith                 Lunch
3   13/11/2009   Jackson+Harris Group

When all columns, except analyst, is the same, then mergethe two rows into one row with a '+' sign in analyst column

How can I write my sql to get TO-BE output?

This would do:
select distinct t1.id, t1.date, t1.type,
substring((SELECT '+' + t2.analyst FROM view_Analysts t2 where t1.id = t2.id for XML PATH ('')), 2, 1000) analyst
FROM view_Analysts t1
