Query Result As Comma-separated List

Hi,
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:

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

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

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

UDF To Split A Comma Separated List

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)

Matching Comma Separated List

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.

Thanks

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

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
      where
            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?

How To Select Multiple Rows As Comma Separated List?

Hi,

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:

tbl_User
UserId, Email

tbl_Category
CatId, CatName

tbl_User_Category
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!

thanks,
Rob

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

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

How Do You Parse A Single Field List Of Values Separated By Comma?

 
IE:

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

 

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?

Query To Get Values From Datetime Column Into Comma Separated Text

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

Comma In Value Within Comma Separated File

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.)

Concatenated String Of Comma Separated Values (was &"Help With Query&")

I have following 2 queries which return different results.

Comma Separated Value

I’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 “hom, wor, chil� .
Another words it will be SELECT * FROM Word WHERE WordName LIKE '%hom%' OR WordName LIKE '%wor%' OR WordName LIKE '%chil%'

Get Values Separated By Comma

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.

Sql Statement Comma Separated String

I have a table called evidence, which has the following Fields

| evidence_id | Description| Standards|
E001 blagh 1.1,1.2,1.3

Ok I am trying to search the comma-separated string in the standards field using the like clause so I can display the evidence_id.

SQL looks like

SELECT Evidence.Standards, *
FROM Evidence
WHERE (((Evidence.Standards) Like '%1.1%'));

However it will not search through the list and select for example if I change 1.1 to 1.2. The commas wont allow it.

It works if I just have one item in the list that is just 1.1. Can anyone help me to search a comma-separated string for a certain string?

Thanks

Comma Separated Cell Into Rows

Hello!

We are on SqlServer 2005.

Let me point out at the beginning that I don't have anyway to normalize this structure or get the admins to change the way the data is stored. We don't own the database where this is housed...we're just given the information via an .xls file...which we import to a SQLServer table.

I have some data that is given to me that has two columns (below is for an example):
Column A is an identifiying number, i.e. for a project
Column B is a comma separated list of account strings for the project

A sample layout of what we get via the .xls file might look like the following (Column A is to the left of the dashes, and Column B is to the right of the dashes):

AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 2222, 3333, 4444, 5555
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- X900, 6789, 9000, 9876

What I need to do is now haveprojects listed out in Column A with each of it's account strings in Column B like so:
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 2222
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 3333
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 4444
AA.ProjectBuildTower ----- 5555

BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- X900
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 6789
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 9000
BB.ProjectBuildFence ----- 9876

Any suggestions would greatly help!

Thanks!

How To Use Comma Separated Lists With Parameters In Sqldatasource?

I'm new (very new) to asp.net and now at 3am after maybe 12 straight hours of trying to go through examples and understand the syntax, I have a somewhat working program... basically a query parameters screen that upon a click generates a report.  The query parameter screen basically is a HTML form with a procedure that puts the field values into session variables.  The report uses <asp:sessionparameters> in the sqldatasource to apply aforementioned session variables to filter the SELECT statement's results.  They are then displayed using the gridview control.  It actually works!
Now I'm trying to figure out: if I need/want my users to be able to enter comma-separated list of values into the HTML form field and somehow get these into the SELECT statement's WHERE clause, is there a way to do this?  I'm not very experienced with asp nor sql server and have been struggling with this new challenge.  I really could use pointers as to whether there's an easy way to handle this.  In other languages in the past I would have had to parse the comma-separated list and use those to construct my SELECT statement programmatically.  I get the impression that with all this ASP.NET fanciness, there has to be a better way?
 If it matters, I'm using ASP.NET 2.0 with SQL Server 2005 Express and Visual Studio Web 2005 Express. 
 Thanks in advance for any replies, they would be GREATLY appreciated :)

Obtaining Column Values Separated By Comma

How do I get the values of a column from a table separated by a comma.

For example

Levels
Level1Name
Level1Value
Level2Name
Level2Value

Result should look like

Procedure Or Query To Make A Comma-separated String From One Table And Update Another Table's Field With This String.

We have the following two tables :

Link  ( GroupID int , MemberID int )
Member ( MemberID int , MemberName varchar(50), GroupID varchar(255) )

The Link table contains the records showing which Member is in which Group. One particular Member can be in
multiple Groups and also a particular Group may have multiple Members.

The Member table contains the Member's ID, Member's Name, and a Group ID field (that will contains comma-separated
Groups ID, showing in which Groups the particular Member is in).

We have the Link table ready, and the Member table' with first two fields is also ready. What we have to do now is to
fill the GroupID field of the Member table, from the Link Table.

For instance,

Read all the GroupID field from the Link table against a MemberID, make a comma-separated string of the GroupID,
then update the GroupID field of the corresponding Member in the Member table.

Please help me with a sql query or procedures that will do this job. I am using SQL SERVER 2000.
