Display data horizontally from DB

Display data horizontally from DB

Display data horizontally from DB

If I have data in TableA:

ProjectNumber    AnotherField
ABCD             xyz

As long as I have just one (or none) record in TableB, I can ask for this data:


Select ProjectNumber || ' ' ||
(Select AnotherField from TableB
Where TableB.ProjectNumber = TableA.ProjectNumber
) As MyProjNo
From TableA
And I get displayed:
ABCD xyz

But I have this in TableB:
ProjectNumber    AnotherField
ABCD             xyz
ABCD             ggg
ABCD             klm
ABCD             opq

And I want to have displayed:
ABCD xyz ggg klm opq

Any ideas?

(Data base is Oracle)

Have fun.

RE: Display data horizontally from DB

I'm sure you could do something, but you might want to ask this specifically in one of the Oracle forums.  I've written code in SQL Server to accomplish that exact task a few times, but the code is very proprietary to SQL Server.

RE: Display data horizontally from DB

Thank you, I will post it again in Oracle group.

Have fun.

RE: Display data horizontally from DB

Have fun.
