Hi telldurges,

Refer below sample query.


DECLARE @Test AS TABLE(Bookid INT, Bookname VARCHAR(MAX), libid INT, libname VARCHAR(MAX))
INSERT INTO @Test VALUES(334,'physics',1,'LIB1')
INSERT INTO @Test VALUES(336,'math',1,'LIB1')
INSERT INTO @Test VALUES(6468,'science',1,'LIB1')
INSERT INTO @Test VALUES(357,'hindi',3,'LIB3')
INSERT INTO @Test VALUES(358,'eng',3,'LIB3')

SELECT libid, Bookid = STUFF
      FROM @Test t
      WHERE t.libid = t1.libid
      FOR XMl PATH('')
Bookname = STUFF  
      SELECT DISTINCT ', '+ CAST(t.Bookname AS VARCHAR(MAX))  
      FROM @Test t
      WHERE t.libid = t1.libid
      FOR XMl PATH('')
FROM @Test t1  
GROUP BY libid ,Libname


libid Bookid Libname Bookname
1 334, 336, 6468 LIB1 math, physics, science
3 357, 358 LIB3 eng, hindi
