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. Please help. Thank you.
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
I have about 100 K records of the form below in Example 1 and I would like to turn them into the form of Example 2, basically turn the entries in field2 into a coma separated list of values sorted by field1.
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?
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).Â 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) WHERE P.PrsnPIISSN_Chr IN ( SELECT '''' + REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR(4000),txtFieldValue), ',', ''',''') + '''' FROM MassProcessing_Rules PR WHERE PR.intRuleID = 10 )
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?
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
result a b c d
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 :
CREATE TABLE #result ( Subject varchar(100) )
insert into #result values ('a') insert into #result values ('b') insert into #result values ('c') insert into #result values ('d')
Hi All I am working on a query to get all the datetime values in a column in a table into a comma separated text. eg. ColumnDate --------------------------- 2005-11-09 00:00:00.0002005-11-13 00:00:00.0002005-11-14 00:00:00.0002005-11-16 00:00:00.000 I wanted to get something like 2005-11-09, 2005-11-13, 2005-11-14, 2005-11-16 Have just started SQL and hence am getting confused in what I think should be a relatively simple query. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks
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.
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.)
I have a parameter value as shown below and this is dynamic and can growÂ
Example : 101-NY, 102-CA, 165-GA 116-NY, 258-NJ, 254-PA, 245-DC, 298-AL How do I get the values in the below format NY,CA,GA Â --- each state to be followed with comma and the next state NY,NJ,PA,DC,AL Â --- each state to be followed with comma and the next state
correct query that will fetch Â only state names and not the numbers.
Hi, I need a sql that returns the query result as comma seperated list of values, instead of several rows. Below is the scenario... Table Name - Customer Columns - CustomerID, Join DateSay below is the data of Customer table ...CustomerID JoinDate1 04/01/20052 01/03/20033 06/02/20044 01/05/20025 09/07/2005Now i want to retrieve all the customerid's who have joined this year. Below is the query that i use for this case.Select CustomerID from Customer where JoinDate between '01/01/2005' and GetDate()This gives the below result as two rows.CustomerID15But i need to get the result as '1,5' (comma seperated list of resulting values).Any help is highly appreciatedThanks in AdvanceRamesh
Now my require ment that I want a distinct comma separated report about these data.Means for code 1 I need a comma separated distinct values.In this case it should be a,b,d My output should be like this 1 a,b,d 2 c,g Can anybody help me I can I do this with the help of a cursor or any other way?

Iâ€™m passing a comma separated parameter (home, world, child) into stored procedure. I have a Slitter function which is basically creates a table out of delimited list.
My stored procedure needs to find matched records in one of the table based on delimited list.
I have something like this:
SELECT * FROM Word WHERE WordName IN (SELECT * FROM dbo.fxSplitter('home,world,child, ',')
I would like to have my stored procedure be able to select rows, even if comma delimited parameter holds part of the name like this â€œhom, wor, chilâ€? . Another words it will be SELECT * FROM Word WHERE WordName LIKE '%hom%' OR WordName LIKE '%wor%' OR WordName LIKE '%chil%'
I have a checkbox list on datalist as one column. when user selects more than one checkbox and click on apply. i concatenate IDs of checkboxes as '1,2'3' for e.g. and sending that to Stroe Procedure as varchar datatype parametrer.
