TSQL - I need to loop through a table and run two queries - queries may return zero or many rows

TSQL - I need to loop through a table and run two queries - queries may return zero or many rows

I am trying to paste together a string - a static first part
The second is a lookup into a table that may return none or many rows (one string)
The third is a lookup into another table that may return none or many rows (one string)
The forth part is a static string

static - lookup + lookup - static
but looping though a table of ids.

Can you explain with examples? What do you already have?

(1)  Post your code.  The content above is hard to conceptualize without code.
(2)  Spell out your question in clear details, as the title is more of a statement than a question.

I presume what you need is some left join or some "group_concat" function/code for the lookups ...
waiting for the examples to eventually build some code

Table of prodution items
Loop through ids of items results will say "Production items ' + result of query 1 which I have to pass the id from the looping table - + results of query 2 - which I have to pass the id from the looping table + "thank you'

If that make sense

Nope.  Code please.

Keep in mind that experts here don't work at your company, so the schema of your tables is not going to be very intuitive to us.  For example, my last three gigs where health care, airlines, and agribusiness, so 'Production Items' can mean multiple different things in my experience from your situation.

Also we don't have guess powers (at least I don't).

Just use a query that outputs the 2 constants and a cross apply using "for xml path" for each of the 2 queries.

(If that answer is too brief or lacking in detail, please consider that your question's detail is approximately the same)

Sample Data:
    CREATE TABLE MysteryTable1
    	([ProductionItem] int)
    ;
    	
    INSERT INTO MysteryTable1
    	([ProductionItem])
    VALUES
    	(1),
    	(2),
    	(3)
    ;
    
    CREATE TABLE MysteryTable2
    	([ProductionItem] int, [MysteryField1] varchar(7))
    ;
    	
    INSERT INTO MysteryTable2
    	([ProductionItem], [MysteryField1])
    VALUES
    	(1, 'aaa'),
    	(1, 'bbb'),
    	(1, 'ccc'),
    	(2, 'aaaa'),
    	(2, 'bbbb'),
    	(2, 'cccc'),
    	(3, 'ababa'),
    	(3, 'bcbcbc'),
    	(3, 'cdcdcdc')
    ;
    
    CREATE TABLE MysteryTable3
    	([ProductionItem] int, [MysteryField2] varchar(9))

    INSERT INTO MysteryTable3
    	([ProductionItem], [MysteryField2])
    VALUES
    	(1, 'x-aaa'),
