Hi,

What query have you tried so far?

You don't need to transpose rows into columns. You need to concatenate [SODetailId] column values by distinct [SOHeaderId] into a string separated by commas. One of the simplest ways to do this is to use XML PATH('').

Your query should be something like this:
SELECT DISTINCT [SOHeaderId],
                STUFF((SELECT ',' + CAST([SODetailId] AS VARCHAR(10))
                       FROM   [TableName] t1
                       WHERE  t1.[SOHeaderId] = t2.[SOHeaderId]
                       FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '')
FROM   [TableName] t2

I am assuming that the data type of [SODetailId] is INT, so I am casting it to VARCHAR(10).
