Query Result As Comma-separated List

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 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
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
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?
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
setvoted = true
whereEmpID 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?

How To Select Multiple Rows As Comma Separated List?

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.
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) 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

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

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.)

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:

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?

Comma Separated Cell Into Rows

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!

How To Use Comma Separated Lists With Parameters In Sqldatasource?
I'm new (very new) to 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 :)

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.

I've tried a subreport, but because the row is colored and if another field, title, expands to a second row (b/c of the length) and the subreport has just one name, then the sub-report has some different color underneath due to it being smaller in height.

I'm kinda stuck on how to do this.

SELECT WHERE (any Value In Comma Delimited List) IN (comma Delimited List)
I want to allow visitors to filter a list of events to show only those belonging to categories selected from a checklist.

Here is an approach I am trying:

TABLE Events(EventID int, Categories varchar(200))

EventID Catetories
1           ‘6,8,9’
2           ‘2,3’

PROCEDURE ListFilteredEvents
   @FilterList varchar(200)    -- contains ‘3,5’
WHERE (any value in Categories) IN @FilterList



How can I select all records where any value in the Categories column
matches a value in @FilterList. In this example, record 2 would be
selected since it belongs to category 3, which is also in @FilterList.

I’ve looked at the table of numbers approach, which works when
selecting records where a column value is in the parameter list, but I
can’t see how to make this work when the column itself also contains a
comma delimited list.

Can someone suggest an approach?

Any examples would be greatly appreciated!

I have the following query:

Newsletters ON News.ID = Newsletters.fkNewsID

My problem is that fkNewsID can contain a comma delimited list of various IDs. Is there a way to properly do the join in this case?

Help With Subquery: Comma-delimited Id List To Value
Hello any MS SQL experts out there! please help if you can. i'm trying to run a subquery
within a query to keep myself from having to loop over the original query on display and
then run additional queries to get the further info. here's the setup. i have two tables:

persons table
column: name (varchar)
column: vehicleids (varchar)

vehicles table
column: id (int pk)
column: vehiclename (varchar)

- The persons table is a list of peoples' names and what kind of vehicle/s they own.
- The persons.vehicleids field is a comma-delimited list of one or more integers which correspond to the field.
- The vehicles table contains a list of vehicles like car, bicycle, motorcycle, etc, distinguished by the field.

The result i want returned by the query is:

Joe Somebody - car,bicycle
Sheila Johnson - van,pogostick,motorcycle
John Nobody - skateboard,car

The query i'm trying to run to get this result is:

Code Snippet

SELECT ve.vehiclename
FROM vehicles ve
WHERE CAST( AS VARCHAR) IN (pe.vehicleids)
) AS vehicles
FROM persons pe

It returns the persons names in the first column, but only returns vehicle names in the
second column when there's a single id in the persons.vehicleids field. if there's more
than one integer in the field, it returns an empty string.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I do have the option of table restructuring if
its necessary, but I'm not looking for a stored procedure solution or a temp table
solution. Any takers? I would be in the kharmic debt of anyone providing a workable

Thank you,

Comma Delimited List Of IDs To A Recordset From 2 Tables...
Have 2 tables in SQL Server 05 DB:

First one is MyList

user_id -> unique value
list -> comma-delimited list of user_ids
notes -> random varchar data

Second one is MyProfile

user_id -> unique value

I need a stored proc to return rows from MyProfile that match the comma-delimited contents in the "list" column of MyList, based on the user_id matched in MyList. The stored proc should receive as input a @user_id for MyList then return all this data.

The format of the comma-delimited data is as such (all values are 10-digit alphanumerics):


The data returned should be all the columns of MyProfile, and the columns of MyList (which will obviously be duplicated for each row returned).

Thank you!

Showing A Comma Seperated List In A Field
I want to have a query that selects member information as well as a list of all the groupid's that the member is a part of.

I was trying to do a subquery:

select member.username, (select groupid from membergroup where membergroup.memberid = member.memberid) as groups from member where memberid=3

but as soon as the member got more than one group record within the membergroup table it would produce an error

>Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

How can i select a comma seperated list of all the groupid's the member is a part of within a single query?

Using Comma Seperated List Of Number S In An IN Statement
am using sql server 2005 , and am passing sql server a comma seperated list of numbers that I want to use in an IN statement

in the stored proc

@internal varchar(100)
(e.g @internal gets populate with '32,50')
then the statement

select count (contactid) from contacts where contactid in(@internal)

but I am getting an error

Conversion failed when converting the varchar value '32,50' to data type int.

If as an experiment I hard code the 32,50 into the sp it works fine , I have tried using CAST to no use , the field contactid is an integer , but I would have thought sql server would be ok having a comma seperated varchar to compare to an int , cant seem to find a solution , any help appreciated thanks

Comma Delimited List Update Stored Procedure
I have a stored procedure that I want to use to update multiple records. I'm using ASP and the request form collection is returning values in a comma delimited list.
name1 = value1, value2, value3, etc.
name2 = value1, value2, value3, etc.
name3 = value1, value2, value3, etc.

Here is how I wrote my stored procedure:

@abrID int,
@ddo varchar(50),
@ay varchar(50),
@strategy varchar(10),
@budgacct varchar(10),
@budgobj varchar(10),
@incrdecr varchar(50),
@review char(10),
@abrdetlsID varchar(50)
SET ABR_review = @review

ABR_DETLS_STRATEGY = @strategy, ABR_DETLS_BUDG_ACCT = @budgacct,
ABR_DETLS_BUDG_OBJ = @budgobj, ABR_DETLS_FUND_ORIG_AMT = convert(money, @origamt), ABR_DETLS_FUND_INCR_DECR = convert(money, @incrdecr)
ABR_DETLS_ID = @abrdetlsID

The second update is where the comma delimited list needs to be handled. The first update is only updating one field once.

Is there a way to write the procedure to handle the comma delimited list? Or, is the way I have the stored procedure okay and I just need to handle the comma delimited list within the ASP code? I'm not sure which way I can accomplish this?

Thanks for any help.

Pass Comma Delimited List To Stored Procedure
I am trying to pass a comma delimited llist of names to a stored procedure. I am getting a syntax error and I can't seem to figure out why. When i plug the names by hand into my select statement in query analyzer it all works fine.
Just a little background so i don't have to put all the code in... the list of name is built dynamically.
Below are all the code snippets. Thanks for your help in advance.
The is the list of names and the call to the stored procedure:


employeeList = 'name1','name2',name3','name4','name5'
SQL="sp_REVIEW @ACTION='lde', @CURRENT_USER='" & currentUser & "', " &_
"@EMPLOYEE_LIST='" & employeeList & "'"

Here is the stored procedure


SELECT ww.ORACLE_USER_NAME, ww.LAST_NAME + ', ' + ww.FIRST_NAME as employeeName,
ww1.DIVISION + ' - ' + ww1.COST_CENTER + ' - ' + ww1.COST_CENTER_DESC as department
OR ww.DEPARTMENT_ID IN (SELECT ud.department_id
WHERE ud.nt_id = @CURRENT_USER))
