Using Table-Valued Function in Query

I have a table with the following fields (greatly simplified):

Item, Description, ID, Acc1, Acc2, Acc3, Acc4, Acc5, Acc6
Sample data

I am writing a procedure which takes this data and moves it into a properly normalised table, which will have the following fields:

Item, Description, ID, Office

The Office field value is determined by the values in Acc1, 2, 3 etc and so there may be between 1 and 6 records copied to the new table depending on the contents of these 6 fields.  I have written a table-valued function which examines these fields and returns a table with one field thus:


My question is:  How do I link this function into a select query so that I can get this result:

Item, Description, ID, Office

I'm looking for something like this (which obviously doesn't work):

SELECT O.Item, O.[Description], O.ID, N.Office
[dbo].[MYFUNCTION] (O.Acc1, O.Acc2, O.Acc3, O.Acc4) N
