Hi

There are more functions and methods than you could ever need here:

I think I use a version of the first one (the table returning function) as I recall. Very easy to use.

To be more complete - you could use the first function like this:

INSERT INTO MyTable (MyField)
SELECT      Data
FROM dbo.Split('322,992,124,643,233', ',')

Hi bdietz,

another option is to use dynamic sql

EXEC('Insert into urTable (UrColumn)  SELECT  '+@AboveString +'')

I would also use the function suggested by pootle_flump, as it protects against sql injection, and is more readable also.
