I have two tables:

Names(id, name)
Addresses(id, name_id, address)

  • I want to write query that return me:
    name, address list (address1, address2, adress3, ..)

    Something like:

    Select A.name, B.list_of_addresses
    From Names A
        Inner Join (Select name_id, /*list_of_addresses with comma between them*/
                    From Addresses
                    Group By name_id)  B ON A.id=B.name_id

    You can use For XML as a trick to achieve that from SQL Server 2005 onwards.

            select ',' + B.address
            from Addresses B
            WHERE A.id=B.name_id
            for xml path('')),1,1,'')
    From Names A

    It works well if you don’t already have commas in the address, but even if it did, since your request is to put commas between them.. this is probably just as ‘right’.
