Hello experts,

Here is my current SQl and output:

SELECT HU.HubUnitId , HUR.PostalCode
  FROM [Ecommerce].[dbo].[HubUnit] HU
  Join [Ecommerce].[dbo].[HubUnitRegion] HUR
  ON  HU.HubUnitId = HUR.HubUnitId

HubUnitId  PostalCode
3003      46301
3003      46302
3003      46303
3003      46304
3003      46307
3003      61254
3003      61256
3004      76649
3004      76650
3004      76651
3004      76652
3004      76653
3004      76654
3004      76655
3004      76656
3004      76657
3004      76660


I want to write a sql that will generate values like shown below:

HubUnitID   PostalCode
3003             46301, 46302, 46303, 46304
3004             76200,76201,76202,76203


any idea?

Thanks
