One possible way to accomplish:
DEFINE FILE CAR
DUMMY /A100V = IF COUNTRY EQ LAST COUNTRY THEN DUMMY || ';' || CAR ELSE CAR;
END
TABLE FILE CAR
SUM DUMMY AS ''
BY COUNTRY AS ''
END
-RUN

But need to have your data already in the right order. Otherwise you may need a pre-step to order them according to the BY field.

Note : use the code tag when posting sample data and/or code. It's the last one on the ribbon
