I have a job table.  3 columns.   ID, type, and notes.    I want to return one record for each set of records per type, where the notes are merged into one note column. How can I do this?

is GROUP_CONCAT a built in SQL function?  When I try it, I get:

'GROUP_CONCAT' is not a recognized built-in function name.  I'm using MS SQL Server, not MySQL.

E.g.

SELECT  DISTINCT P.Color ,
        STUFF(( SELECT  DISTINCT ', ' + I.NAME
                FROM    AdventureWorks2012.Production.Product I
                WHERE   I.Color = P.Color
                FOR XML PATH('')
             ), 1, 2, '')
FROM    AdventureWorks2012.Production.Product P
WHERE   NOT P.Color IS NULL;
