Dear Experts,

This should be simple, but I’m having a brain dead day.  A day where you leave your coffee on top of the car and drive off.  I want to produce a query where the results show on each row the StudId in one column and his Scores in the second columns separated by a comma.

StudId   Scores
1            81,92,99,65,78,56
2            83,89,43,72,65,77
35         98,96,83

I have attached code to create the test table and insert the raw data.
INSERT-INTO-Scores.sql
CREATE-SCORES.sql

Can I just say "thank you". So few people actually give us a sample data and sample structure. So:

Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you
Thank you

I'm be back in a minute.

You guys are great!  I'm going half and half.  Aneesh, you were first, but Phillip through in STUFF()  which is something new for me.  I always like to learn something new.

Phillip,  Just noticed that your answer was not correct.  Where did the score of 1 come from StudId 1, and 3 from StudId 2 and the score of 8 from StudId35?  Let me know what you discover.  Thanks!

StudID      Scores
1             1, 92, 99, 65, 78, 56
2             3, 89, 43, 72, 65, 77
35             8, 96, 83

Correct answer:
StudId      CSV
1             56,65,78,81,92,99
2             43,65,72,77,83,89
35             83,96,98

Phillip, Had a chance to go back and look at your query and changed the STUFF value ,1,3,'' to 1,2,''.
