Using this code
SELECT C.[Client Name] + '<br />' Client
FROM dbo.ClientVisitTracking cvt
JOIN Client C
	ON	cvt.[Client ID] = C.[Client ID]
WHERE CVT.[Account Executive] = 'jfay'

Open in new window


I get this list

Client
St. Joseph Medical Center - Chicago<br />
St. Joseph Medical Center - Houston<br />

I would like to get this

Client
St. Joseph Medical Center - Chicago<br />St. Joseph Medical Center - Houston<br />

this is known as "group_concat", though not a really build-in function like in MySQL.

see a CLR implementation:
