The problem is much more complex than that. Here is the select statement:
SELECT article_id, teaser_subject, publish_date, status_id, user_id, category_id, username, status_text, category_type, "TAG DATA"
Where you see the "TAG DATA" element, I'll need to get values in this format: "1:A,2:B,3:C"...... from the table.
So, I do not think GROUP BY will work in this situation.
BTW: We are on 10G. I've looked at some of the CONNECT BY stuff, but not sure that will work. Received on Mon May 17 2010 - 20:36:11 CDT
