Query Result As Comma-separated List

Jul 23, 2005

I'n in an environment where I cannot make stored procedures. Now I need
to make a query with a subquery in the SELECT part which gives a comma
separated list of results:

listFunction(SELECT name FROM names WHERE name_parent=p.id) AS
FROM projects AS p

This query should return something like:
1, "john,mike,petra"
2, "bob,carl,sandra,peter,

listFunction is (of course) not (yet) defined. Is this possible without
the use of stored procedures?

UDF To Split A Comma Separated List

Feb 26, 2008

Hello. I need to write a UDF that would split a comma separated list and return 4 values. I need to return the first 4 values and ignore the commas after that. If there are no commas in the string that's passed then just return the table with empty strings. The UDF should accept 2 inputs. The ntext and a position and return a value based on the position.For example: 1,2,3,textshould createPosition | Value-------------------------1|12|23|34|textand return a value based on the position.  If there are more than 3 commas for example1,2,3,This string, though short, contains a commashould createPosition | Value-------------------------1|12|23|34|This string, though short, contains a commaand return a value based on the position. And if there are are less than 3 commas in the string passedFor example: 1,2 or NULL or 2:3.5 or This is a string with no commasshould createPosition | Value
1| (empty string)
2| (empty string)
3| (empty string)
4| (empty string)and return a value based on the position.This is what I wrote so far. CREATE  function GetValueFromPosition  (@Input nvarchar(4000), @position int)Returns nvarchar(4000)AsBegin    -- Declare the return Variable    Declare @ReturnValue nvarchar(4000)        Select @ReturnValue = LTRIM(RTRIM(member_id)) From dbo.SplitString(@Input, ',') Where position = @position     Return @ReturnValueEnd CREATE Function SplitString(@text varchar(8000), @delimiter varchar(1) = ',')-- This function splits a string of CSV values and creates a table variable with the values.-- Returns the table variable that it createsRETURNS @Strings TABLE(    position int IDENTITY PRIMARY KEY,    member_id varchar(8000))ASBEGIN    Declare @index int        Set @index = -1             WHILE (LEN(@text) > 0)           BEGIN        SET @index = CHARINDEX(@delimiter , @text)         IF (@index = 0) AND (LEN(@text) > 0)                BEGIN                 INSERT INTO @Strings VALUES (@text)            BREAK           END             IF (@index > 1)                 BEGIN              INSERT INTO @Strings VALUES (LEFT(@text, @index - 1))              SET @text = RIGHT(@text, (LEN(@text) - @index))            END            ELSE                SET @text = RIGHT(@text, (LEN(@text) - @index))           END        RETURNEND I am trying to modify these according to what I need but its not working.

Matching Comma Separated List

Jun 7, 2008

I have the following SQL Query:

SELECT user_profiles.userFirstName, user_profiles.userInitial, user_profiles.userLastName, user_types.userTypeDesc, user_profiles.userOfficeIDs, user_profiles.userEmail
FROM user_profiles
INNER JOIN user_types ON user_types.userTypeID = user_types.userTypeID

The field userOfficeID contains a comma separated list of values such as "1,2" to identify that the user is in both the NJ and NY office.

Table office_locations
OfficeID officeState
1 NJ
2 NY
3 CT

I would like the output to be something similar to:

Name Office userOfficeIDs value
John Smith NJ 1
Mary Smith NJ/NY 1,2
Jim Smith NJ/CT 1,3
Mike Smith NY 2

Any direction would be appreciated.

How To Use Comma Separated Value List In The Where Clause?

Jun 28, 2006

How to use comma separated value list in the where clause?

I would like to do something like the following (Set voted = true for all rows in tblVoters where EmpID is in the comma separated value list).

update tbl_Voters
set voted = true
where EmpID in @empIdsCsv

Where, @empIdsCsv = 12,23,345, (IDs of the employees)

Since the above is not possible I have done the following dynamic query:

-- Convert the comma separated values to conditional statement like EmpID = {id} or EmpliD = {id}
set @empIdsCsv = 'EmpID=' + substring(@empIdsCsv , 0, len(@empIdsCsv )) -- Remove trailing comma
set @empIdsCsv = replace(@empIdsCsv , ',', ' or EmpID=')

declare @markVoters varchar(8000)
set @markVoters = '
update tbl_Voters
set voted = true
where + @empIdsCsv

--Execute the dinamic query
exec (@markVoters)

The above code generates the following dynamic query:
update tbl_Voters
set voted = true
EmpID= 12 or EmpID=23 or EmpID=345

The obvious drawback here is the performance and the limitation of the dynamic query length (8000 chars).

Can someone suggest a better solution with the ability to use comma seperated values in the where clause?

Transact SQL :: Replace With A Comma Separated List

Aug 5, 2015

I have a replace statement like the following:

select  (replace('FMG','FMG','FM'))

So this is straightforward as it will replace the word 'FMG' with 'FM'

However, SSRS is passing a comma separated list like this:

select  (replace('FMG','AFM','FMG','FM'))

And what I need to do is replace the comma separated list of 'FMG','AFM' only.  I tried this:

select  (replace('''FMG','AFM''','FMG','FM'))

But it still complaining about syntax errors. How do I get the comma separated list to be seen by the replace function?

SQL Server 2012 :: Comma Separated In A Single Result

May 30, 2014

I have the following table

CREATE Table #Table1
ID INT, Name VARCHAR(50), Class VARCHAR(10)
Select 1, 'name1', 'a' UNION ALL
Select 2, 'name1', 'a' UNION ALL

[Code] ....

Is it possible to have each name and its corresponding class in a single line separated by commas to give a result like the one below in #table2 ?

CREATE Table #Table2
ID INT, CommaSeparated VARCHAR(100)
Select 1, 'name1, a' UNION ALL

[Code] ...

What I have

Select * FROM #Table1

Final Result
Select * FROM #Table2

Note that I still want to see all the IDs regardless.

If that is not possible to see all the IDs, I think the results below in #Table3 should suffice.

CREATE Table #Table3
CommaSeparated VARCHAR(100)
Select 'name1, a' UNION ALL
Select 'name2, b, c, d' UNION ALL
Select 'name3, e, f'
Select * FROM #Table3

How To Select Multiple Rows As Comma Separated List?

Jul 4, 2004


I have a table of users, a table of categories, and a many-to-many table linking users to categories.

My problem is that I want to select all the users with an extra column containing a comma-separated list of the categories they belong to.

Here is a stripped-down version of the table fields:

UserId, Email

CatId, CatName

UserId, CatId

I have tried using the coalesce function to build a string, but can only get this to work for one row at a time:

DECLARE @list nvarchar(100)

SELECT @list = COALESCE(@list + ', ', '') + CAST(CatId AS varchar(4))
FROM tbl_User_Category
WHERE UserId = @UserId

SELECT @list as List

Any ideas on how to add to this to get it to do each row in tbl_Page? Or am I attacking this from the wrong angle?????

Any help would be fantastic!

Function To Create Comma Separated List From Any Given Column/table.

Jul 20, 2005

Hi,I'm sure this is a common problem.. to create a single field from awhole column, where each row would be separated by a comma.I can do this for a specified table, and column.. and I've created afunction using VBA to achieve a more dynamic (and very slow) solution..so I would like to implement it using a user defined function in sql server.The problems I'm facing are, that I can't use dynamic sql in afunction.. and I also can't use temporary tables which could build up a'standard' table from parameters given to then perform the function on.So, with these limitations, what other options do I have?Cheers,Chris

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: Creating Comma Separated List Of Details From Multiple Columns?

Jun 3, 2010

I am trying to find a way to add into a table a flattened (comma seperated list) of email addresses based on the multiple columns of nformation in another table (joined by customer_full_name and postcode.

This is to highlight duplicate email addresses for people under the same customer_full_name and Postcode.

I have done this using a loop which loops through concatenating the email addresses but it takes 1minute to do 1000. The table is 19,000 so this isn't really acceptable. I have tried temp tables, table variables and none of this seems to make any difference. I think that it is becuase i am joining on text columns?

Create table #tempa
customer_Full_Name varchar(100),
Customer_Email varchar(100),
Postcode varchar(100),
AlternateEmail varchar(max)NULL
insert into #tempa (customer_full_name,customer_email,postcode)

Transact SQL :: Get Multiple Rows Based On Comma-separated Ntext List In On Column?

Jun 2, 2015

I have a table that is used to build rules. The rules point to other columns in other tables and usually contain only one value (i.e. ABC). But one of the options is to add a comma-separated list of SSNs (i.e. 123123123,012012012,112231122).  I am trying to build a single query that allows me to leverage that list to get multiple rows from another table.

This obviously works:

SELECT * FROM vw_Person_Profile P (NOLOCK)
WHERE P.PrsnPIISSN_Chr IN ('123123123','012012012','112231122')

But this does not:

SELECT * FROM vw_Person_Profile P (NOLOCK)
SELECT '''' + REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR(4000),txtFieldValue), ',', ''',''') + ''''
FROM MassProcessing_Rules PR
WHERE PR.intRuleID = 10

Report Designer: Need To List Fields From Multiple Result Rows As Comma Seperated List (like A JOIN On Parameters)

Apr 9, 2008

I know I can do a JOIN(parameter, "some seperator") and it will build me a list/string of all the values in the multiselect parameter.

However, I want to do the same thing with all the occurances of a field in my result set (each row being an occurance).

For example say I have a form that is being printed which will pull in all the medications a patient is currently listed as having perscriptions for. I want to return all those values (say 8) and display them on a single line (or wrap onto additional lines as needed).

Something like:
List of current perscriptions: Allegra, Allegra-D, Clariton, Nasalcort, Sudafed, Zantac

How can I accomplish this?

I was playing with the list box, but that only lets me repeat on a new line, I couldn't find any way to get it to repeate side by side (repeat left to right instead of top to bottom). I played with the orientation options, but that really just lets me adjust how multiple columns are displayed as best I can tell.

Could a custom function of some sort be written to take all the values and spit them out one by one into a comma seperated string?

SQL 2012 :: Pass List Items To Stored Proc As Comma Separated Parameter - Foreach Loop

Feb 11, 2015

I have a multiselect checkbox list in my UI. I pass the list items to my stored proc as comma separated parameter and then I have a function which converts this parameter to a table with separate rows.

E.g. : a,b,c,d

Converted to result table


I want to insert each row of the result table into another table. How to do that.

E.g., the table after the function is :

Subject varchar(100)

insert into #result values ('a')
insert into #result values ('b')
insert into #result values ('c')
insert into #result values ('d')

So the pseudo code is something like

for each row in #result

insert row into another table

Comma In Value Within Comma Separated File

Apr 10, 2006

I have a file which contains comma separated columns. One of columns contains names of companies. Sometimes the names of the companies have a comma as part of the name. For those, the value is surrounded by double-quotes.

But it seems that SSIS ignores the double quotes and ONLY looks for the column separator. This causes my value to be split in half.

Traditionally, I thought parsers that deal with this type of import do not automatically take the first comma following the double-quote as the column separator but instead look for the first comma following the ending quote. (i.e. Look at how Excel performs imports...)

I cannot set the column separator of the column to double-quote comma since only those values that HAVE a comma in them are qualified.

Any ideas?

Here is sample fie content to see what I mean:

342123, Jason, 12345
21, Kim,4567
32.43, John Paul, 1245
23, "Mr. T", 98764
12, "Peter, Paul, Mary", 09643

The last entry should be imported as 12 in the first column, "Peter, Paul, Mary" in the second column and 09643 in the third but instead ends up as 12 in the first, "Peter in second column and Paul, Mary", 09643 in the last.

(Oddly enough, if I remove the first column of numbers the import works like it is supposed.)

Get Values Separated By Comma

Nov 30, 2004

Hello, I need your advice.
Here's my scenario.

Table A
id name
100 apple
115 grape
125 tomato
145 melon

Table B
id Fruits
11 100, 115, 145
12 125, 115
13 100

I thought i could get the list of fruits using this statement:

select name
from A where id IN (select fruits from B where id = 11)

But apparently not, it's working if
select name
from A where id IN (select fruits from B where id = 13)

That means it does not recognize values seperated by comma. Anyone who has any idea how to make it work?

Thanks in advance.
