Concatenating results for equal conditions

Concatenating results for equal conditions

Concatenating results for equal conditions

Hi folks,

I'm struggling to formulate a solution to this simple little task...

CODE --> php

foreach($db->query('SELECT zip, name FROM memberrecords ORDER BY zip ASC')as $record)
echo $zip."=".$name."<br>".PHP_EOL;

If I have 2 or more zip codes the same, I'd like to concatenate the names.
So, instead of outputting ...

102=Al Capone
123=Fred Bloggs
123=John Doe
123=Fred Fuzz
234=Henry Kissinger

I want to get ...

102=Al Capone
123=Fred Bloggs, John Doe, Fred Fuzz
234=Henry Kissinger

Any clues much appreciated!



RE: Concatenating results for equal conditions



SELECT     zip, GROUP_CONCAT( name ) AS `name`
FROM       test
