Multiple rows of data into 1 row results?

Is there a way to get multiple rows of data to show in 1 row of results?

I have a Data Table (ID, Name, Date, etc), Facility Table (ID, Name) and FacilityKey Table (Data ID and Facility ID). The Data table has a 1 to many relationship with the FacilityKey table.
I want to return the Data ID and each Facility Name associated with that Data ID to display in a DataGrid (preferably each Facility Name in the same cell on the grid too), but am stumped on how to get teh query to work (or where to look in the SQL documentation for something like this).

What you are trying to do is typically called a pivot table or cross tab query.

Take a look at this post: view post 350666. Someone has posted a suggestion to use a table control to accomplish this. See if anything there helps you. If not, post again :-)

I think I may have to do it outside of SQL. I don't want to do any sort of aggregation of the data - just display it in 1 row instead of multiple and I don't see anywhere how to do the SQL cross tab without using an aggregate function of some sort.

Well, you could write a UDF that would take the DataID as a parameter and would return a comma-delimited list of all of the facilities for that DataID.  Like this:

(@DataID int)
RETURNS varchar(8000)
DECLARE @facilities VARCHAR(8000)
SET @facilities = ''

@facilities = @facilities + ', ' + FacilityTable.FacilityName
FacilityKeyTable ON DataTable.DataID = FacilityKeyTable.KeyDataID
FacilityTable ON FacilityKeyTable.KeyFacilityID = FacilityTable.FacilityID
DataTable.DataID = @DataID
IF @facilities <> ''
SET @facilities = SUBSTRING(@facilities,3,LEN(@facilities)-2)
RETURN (@facilities)

You would use that function like this:
SELECT DataID, dbo.getFacilities(DataID) FROM DataTable

Thank you! That is exactly what I was looking for!

If efficiency is a priority for you then this function is a poor solution since under the hood it means you are doing N queries for each row returned where N is the number of facilities.  A cross-tab query will be more efficient.

Data entry page. Multiple rows, ability to edit rows.

Then before they can submit the records to be written to the database I need to run some error checking. For instance they could be entering a number of transactions, positive and negative integer values, and when add...

Hello. Here's a rather interesting dilemma--hopefully easy to solve? Though I'm stumped for the moment, so any help will be greatly appreciated. I have a gridview with master records listed. The records are acquired using L2S and a sproc that applies Row_Number() to the results for custom paging. The resultset looks fine. It binds to the gridview as expected (displaying data for rows 1 through 5). Each master record has a "select" column to allow the user to select which master record to display in the detail record view. When select is clicked, the child records are&...
