What have you tried so far - and where are you having issues?

Just like I asked you over on SQL Server Central, why are you hell bent on replacing STUFF() (and what you really mean is the concatenation being done by for FOR XML PATH)? What is the issue with that?

ok thanks

That's not quite the answer I was looking for. The question is WHY do you want to get rid of "Stuff"?
