Lets say you have the following table structure below

Location Table
id  | property_id | location_type
1   | 1           | 1
2   | 1           | 2
3   | 2           | 1
4   | 3           | 2
5   | 4           | 1
6   | 4           | 2

Amenities Table
id  | property_id | amenity_type
1   | 1           | 1
2   | 1           | 3
3   | 2           | 2
4   | 3           | 4
5   | 4           | 1
6   | 4           | 3


Is it possible to do something with the following tables

Select distinct property_id but the results would be like this


property_id | amenity_type
1           | 1,3,2
2           | 3,2,3
3           | 2,1,5

not sure how you can come from your input data to the final data, but you surely want to use GROUP_CONCAT function ...

I agree with a3, the final result is not valid for the sample you gave us. Anyway, using the Amenities table as the example (i.e., you can do the same thing with Locations).

SELECT property_id
     , GROUP_CONCAT(amenity_type) AS amenity_type
FROM Amenities 
GROUP BY property_id 
;

Open in new window


The manual reference by a3 already gives you more details.

P.S. please credit a3, I am just helping with the code example.
