return join table row values as comma-delim list in one column

I have the below query which returns a dataset such as this:

1      2      2      10      2012-03-26 14:12:10.000
1      2      2      40      2012-03-26 14:12:10.000
1      2      2      60      2012-03-26 14:12:10.000

This is because the m table has one row that matches @clientmedicationid, and the b table contains three rows that relate to the m table record foreign key. This is correct.

I want to instead return one row representing the m table, and show the b table 10,40 and 60 values as a comma delimited list in one column of that row. There could be up to 9 possible values/rows in b table for each unique row in m.

Thanks.


SELECT m.new_currentmedication, m.new_takingasindicated, m.new_doctordiscontinued, b.new_reasonfornoncompliance, m.createdon
FROM new_medicationcompliance m WITH (NOLOCK)
JOIN new_medcompliancereasonformednoncompliance b WITH (NOLOCK)
ON b.new_medicationcompliancereviewid = m.new_medicationcomplianceid
WHERE m.new_clientmedicationid = @clientmedicationid
AND m.deletionstatecode <> 2
AND m.statecode = 0

Create a function to collate the values:
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].ItemsForKey
(
    @clientmedicationid INT,
    @new_currentmedication INT,
    @new_takingasindicated INT,
    @new_doctordiscontinued INT
)
RETURNS VARCHAR(MAX)
AS
BEGIN
	DECLARE @ItemList VARCHAR(200)
	SELECT @ItemList = coalesce(@ItemList + ',', '') + cast(b.new_reasonfornoncompliance AS VARCHAR(10))
	FROM new_medicationcompliance m WITH (NOLOCK)
		JOIN new_medcompliancereasonformednoncompliance b WITH (NOLOCK) ON b.new_medicationcompliancereviewid = m.new_medicationcomplianceid
	WHERE m.new_clientmedicationid = @clientmedicationid
		AND m.deletionstatecode <> 2
		AND m.statecode = 0
		AND m.new_currentmedication = @new_currentmedication
		AND m.new_takingasindicated = @new_takingasindicated
		AND m.new_doctordiscontinued = @new_doctordiscontinued
	RETURN (@ItemList)
END  

Open in new window


Then call it in your query:
SELECT m.new_currentmedication,
	   m.new_takingasindicated,
	   m.new_doctordiscontinued,
	   [dbo].ItemsForKey(@clientmedicationid, m.new_currentmedication, m.new_takingasindicated, m.new_doctordiscontinued) AS ItemList,
	   m.createdon
FROM new_medicationcompliance m WITH (NOLOCK)
	JOIN new_medcompliancereasonformednoncompliance b WITH (NOLOCK) ON b.new_medicationcompliancereviewid = m.new_medicationcomplianceid
WHERE m.new_clientmedicationid = @clientmedicationid
	AND m.deletionstatecode <> 2
	AND m.statecode = 0
