sql server query

I have 2 queries that show me the clientcode and word data. I would like to get the [wordposition] & [ÀsciiEncode] horizontalised so I can see in the first query this:
'260,358,283,138' this being the ascii sequence order following the wordposition.

The sql so far:

select tw.ClientName, TW.StrShort, TW.clientcode, sum(CWC.asciiencode) as AsciiEncodeTotal, sum(CWC.AsciiEncodeClientCode) as AsciiEncodeCCodeTotal, sum(CWC.WordLength) as WordLengthTotal, sum(CWC.NoOfWords) As WordTotal
from TblCurrentWordCounts CWC left join tblwords TW on CWC.clientcode=TW.ClientCode
where TW.StrShort like'xc90%' and tw.clientcode='54553002'  --and TW.ClientName='Smmt'--and TW.StrShort like'%es%118i%' 
group by CWC.clientcode, TW.ClientCode,TW.StrShort,tw.ClientName
order by tw.ClientName

select TW.ClientCodeWordPosition, TW.ClientCode, tw.AsciiEncode, tw.AsciiEncodeClientCode,  tw.WordPosition
from Tblwords TW
where clientcode='54553002'
group by TW.ClientCode, TW.ClientCodeWordPosition,tw.AsciiEncode, tw.AsciiEncodeClientCode,  tw.WordPosition

So you want the sequence to be in the 1st query.
2nd query is only to show us the data, right?

Ok. With no data to test I came with this solution so isn't tested:
SELECT tw.ClientName, TW.StrShort, TW.clientcode, sum(CWC.asciiencode) as AsciiEncodeTotal, sum(CWC.AsciiEncodeClientCode) as AsciiEncodeCCodeTotal, sum(CWC.WordLength) as WordLengthTotal, sum(CWC.NoOfWords) As WordTotal,
	STUFF((SELECT ', ' + AsciiEncode 
          FROM Tblwords
          WHERE Tblwords.clientcode=CWC.clientcode
		  ORDER BY WordPosition
          FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '') AsciiOrder
FROM TblCurrentWordCounts CWC 
	LEFT JOIN tblwords TW on CWC.clientcode=TW.ClientCode
WHERE TW.StrShort like'xc90%' and tw.clientcode='54553002'  --and TW.ClientName='Smmt'--and TW.StrShort like'%es%118i%' 
GROUP BY CWC.clientcode, TW.ClientCode,TW.StrShort,tw.ClientName
ORDER BY tw.ClientName

Check if it works.

I assumed (wrong) they're all varchar. So you'll need to convert it:
SELECT tw.ClientName, TW.StrShort, TW.clientcode, sum(CWC.asciiencode) as AsciiEncodeTotal, sum(CWC.AsciiEncodeClientCode) as AsciiEncodeCCodeTotal, sum(CWC.WordLength) as WordLengthTotal, sum(CWC.NoOfWords) As WordTotal,
	STUFF((SELECT ', ' + CAST(AsciiEncode AS VARCHAR)
          FROM Tblwords
          WHERE Tblwords.clientcode=CWC.clientcode
		  ORDER BY WordPosition
          FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '') AsciiOrder
FROM TblCurrentWordCounts CWC 
	LEFT JOIN tblwords TW on CWC.clientcode=TW.ClientCode
WHERE TW.StrShort like'xc90%' and tw.clientcode='54553002'  --and TW.ClientName='Smmt'--and TW.StrShort like'%es%118i%' 
GROUP BY CWC.clientcode, TW.ClientCode,TW.StrShort,tw.ClientName
ORDER BY tw.ClientName

Actually, that's a very known trick.
It's a combination of STUFF function to remove the first comma and FOR XML PATH keyword to generate the concatenation of all rows in a single string.
