Union and Group by

I want to group them up. This is my sample data and the result I want it to returns.

cellprepared      ID      COL001      COL002      COL003      COL004      COL005      COL006      COL007      COL008
ZIP      1      2014-12-31 00:00:00      99            AAA                        
ZIP      4      2014-12-02 00:00:00             993710      AAA                        
ZIP      7      2014-12-10 00:00:00             993720      AAA                        
TRANSNO      1      2014-12-31 00:00:00      99            AAA                        
TRANSNO      2      2014-12-17 00:00:00      12303            AAA                        


Result

ID  COL001              COL002  COL003  COL004 COL005 COL006 COL007 COL008 cellprepared
1   2014-12-31 00:00:00 99      AAA                                        ZIP, TRANSNO
2   2014-12-17 00:00:00            AAA                                       TRANSNO
etc


SELECT 'ZIP' as cellprepared, * FROM      TMPTABLE
WHERE Col002 NOT IN (SELECT distinct ZIP FROM ZIPTABLE)
UNION ALL
SELECT 'TRANSNO' as cellprepared, *
FROM TMPTABLE
WHERE not exists (Select transno_no from TRANSNOTABLE where transno_no = Col003)

doesn't this do what you desire?

select id,col001,col002,col003,col004,col005,col006,col007,col008
   ,Stuff(ltrim(case when z.zip is null then ',ZIP' else ' ' end
   +case when tn.transno is null then ',TRANSCODE' else ' ' end)
    ),1,0,'')   
 as cellprepared
from tmptable as t
left outer join (select distinct zip from ziptable) as z
on t.col002=z.zip
left outer join (select distinct transno_no from transnotable) as TN
on t.col003 = tn.transno_no
order by id

Hi,

What you are asking for is that cellprepared be concatenated.

I wrote a short piece on how to do this here:
