Together one column’s data in one string

There is a useful expression in T-SQL  “COALESCE()” we can use it for combining a column data into a string easyly

For example

Declare @sumtextnvarchar(100)
select top 5 @sumtext = Coalesce(@sumtext + ‘;’ ,) + Cast(Name as nvarchar)
from Country
print @sumtext

Output:

Afrika;Australi en Nieuw-Zeeland;Belgi;Benelux;Bulgarije;Canada;China;Duitsland;EU-landen;Frankrij

May the code be with you !
