Default Creating a view (Access Front end/SQL Back end)

I posted this on the SQL Server 2005 forum too, but the reply was a link to another website that was WAY above my head!

I am trying to create a view using the Query Designer in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express and do not know how to accomplish it. I need it based off of another view with columns CCNNumber & PartNumber.
For example I have these records...

09-0001 AO-1234
09-0001 MIO-5678
09-0001 SGO-9012
09-0002 MIO-1234
09-0002 MIO-9876
09-0003 ASO-1234

I want the view to generate the following....
09-0001 AO-1234; MIO-5678; SGO-9012
09-0002 MIO-1234; MIO-9876
09-0003 ASO-1234

I can accomplish this in the front end using VBA...but it is really slow due to the number of records it is working with; hence the reason I would like it to be in a view on SQL that I can link as a it will run much faster.

(I am not very fluent with SQL...I am self taught and have not had any training.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The only thing standing between you and your goal is doubt. Quit doubting yourself and you'll be able to accomplish anything!
