"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

for that you have to re-write the above query as below

declare @t VARCHAR(2000)
SET @T = (Select  '; ' + d.name
From Departments d
From XML Path(''), elements)

select stuff(@t,len(@t),1,'')

you just have to replace the 1,1,'' with the len(string),1,''.
