Angelll recently answered a question of mine.  The solution is here:

It works great when I pass a string of numbers to the function but won't work when I pass a string of characters.  The error message I get is:

Server: Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 2
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'COLLATE'.

Can anyone (or Angelll) help?

Many Thanks, Simon
