Concatenate multiple cursor results Into one row using SPUFI

Concatenate multiple cursor results Into one row using SPUFI

Hi All,

I have googled this as well as searching the forum where I found this (563117) and from what I can gather what I want to do is not possible in SPUFI (I already have it running in a CICS program, I was just intrigued to see if it was possible within SPUFI).

I have a parent table & a child table that has one to many records relating to the parent.
Is there a way of writing a bit of SPUFI that will bring back the parent key & each child record concatenated together into a single row?

For example.
1      Row1
2      Row2

FK     TYPE     DESC
1      1        HELLO
1      2        MY
1      3        NAME
1      4        IS
2      1        JOHN
2      2        SMITH

So that the result would be
1    , Row1   , HELLO MY NAME IS
2    , Row2   , JOHN SMITH
I have managed it in SPUFI using joins but I need a join per child row & because I don't know what the maximum would be it's not really feasible (although still useful as most of the time there are 3 rows or less)

If anyone has any advice if this is even possible in SPUFI or can point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.
