QuestionQuery to concatenate multiple rows based on sequence in results set Pin
Alex Lush24-Jan-13 23:43
memberAlex Lush24-Jan-13 23:43 
Morning All,

I am trying to produce a query for a report that concatenates data from multiple rows. Easiest if I explain what I have, and what I need to end up with! This is Sage Line 500 data by the way.

The table I am querying contains sale order lines as follows:

order_no  order_line_no	 line_type	product	   long_description
100001    1              P              47020      1st description for 47020
100001    2              C                         2nd line description for 47020
100001    3              P              47030      1st description for 47030
100001    4              C                         2nd line description for 47030
100001    5              P              47040      1st description for 47040
100001    6              C                         2nd line description for 47040
100001    7              P              47050      1st description for 47050
100001    8              C                         2nd line description for 47050
100001    9              C                         3rd line for 47050

So the lines with a line_type 'C' are a continuation line for the description. The problem is they are just numbered sequencially and there could be any number of them.

I want to end up with a results set something like this:

order_no  order_line_no	 line_type	product	   long_description
100001    1              P              47020      1st description for 47020 2nd line description for 47020
100001    3              P              47030      1st description for 47030 2nd line description for 47030
100001    5              P              47040      1st description for 47040 2nd line description for 47040
100001    7              P              47050      1st description for 47050 2nd line description for 47050 3rd line for 47050

Any help or pointers on where to start looking greatly apreciated.
Thanks,

Alex
