Hi. I am attempting to create views that display data with rows combined into a single comma delimited row - each have unique record identifiers. I've attached the code I have been working with and an example. I don't think it should be too difficult, I just can't figure it out. Thank you!

You need to limit the data being passed into stuff()
select T1.CaseFileIdentifier,
       STUFF(
              (select ','+convert(varchar(MAX),NoteText)
               from dbo.AllNotes T2
               where T2.CaseFileIdentifier = T1.CaseFileIdentifier
               and t2.NoteType = 'Update'
               for xml Path('')
       ), 1, 1, '') as NoteText                
  from dbo.AllNotes T1
  --where t1.NoteType = 'Update'
 group by T1.CaseFileIdentifier

---------------------------
    INSERT INTO AllNotes
    	([CaseFileIdentifier], [NoteType], [NoteText])
    VALUES
    	(123, 'Update', 'Cow'),
    	(123, 'Update', 'Horse'),
    	(123, 'Assignment', 'Cat'),
    	(456, 'Update', 'Dog'),
    	(456, 'Assignment', 'Chicken'),
    	(456, 'Assignment', 'Duck')
    ;

**Query 1**:

    select T1.CaseFileIdentifier,
           STUFF(
                  (select ','+convert(varchar(MAX),NoteText)
                   from dbo.AllNotes T2
                   where T2.CaseFileIdentifier = T1.CaseFileIdentifier
                   and t2.NoteTYpe = 'Update'
                   for xml Path('')
           ), 1, 1, '') as NoteText                
      from dbo.AllNotes T1
      --where t1.NoteType = 'Update'
     group by T1.CaseFileIdentifier
    

**[Results][2]**:
    
    | CASEFILEIDENTIFIER |  NOTETEXT |
    |--------------------|-----------|
    |                123 | Cow,Horse |
    |                456 |       Dog |
