Hi Staleb,
Please try the following:

SELECT PalletNo, [box weight], COUNT(*)
FROM T
GROUP BY GROUPING SETS ((PalletNo), ([box weight]))

This gave me 3 rows.
Can these three lines be combined into one?

check this.
;with cte as (
select  PalletNo, convert(varchar,box_weight) + 'x' + convert(varchar,count(*)) boxes, count(*) cnt 
  from your_table group by PalletNo, box_weight),
  cte2 as (
select PalletNo,
      rtrim(substring(isnull((select ','+boxes from cte t1 where t1.PalletNo = t2.PalletNo for xml path('')),' '),2,2000)) boxes,
	  cnt
  from cte t2)
select PalletNo, boxes,sum(cnt) total from cte2 group by PalletNo,boxes

Open in new window

example
declare @table table (PalletNo int, box_weight int, cnt int)
insert @table values (19,10,1),(19,20,1),(19,20,1),(19,20,1)


;with cte as (
select  PalletNo, convert(varchar,box_weight) + 'x' + convert(varchar,count(*)) boxes, count(*) cnt 
  from @table group by PalletNo, box_weight),
  cte2 as (
select PalletNo,
      rtrim(substring(isnull((select ','+boxes from cte t1 where t1.PalletNo = t2.PalletNo for xml path('')),' '),2,2000)) boxes,
	  cnt
  from cte t2)
select PalletNo, boxes,sum(cnt) total from cte2 group by PalletNo,boxes
/*
PalletNo	boxes	total
19	10x1,20x3	4
*/
