Here's one one to use 'for xml path'; using cross apply
SELECT
*
FROM employee
CROSS APPLY(
            SELECT STUFF(
                          (
                           SELECT ','+ cast(phone.PhoneNO AS varchar)
                           FROM    Phone
                           WHERE   employee.EmployeeID = phone.EmployeeID
                           FOR XML PATH('')
                           )
                         ,1,1,'')
            ) AS ca1 (phones)

Open in new window

it produces this result:
| EMPLOYEEID | NAME |      PHONES |
|------------|------|-------------|
|          1 |  AAA | 123,456,789 |
|          2 |  BBB |         555 |
