SQL Statement for checking items in field with many IDs (seperated by comma)

Hi,

I have a table setup as below:

Name: TABLE1
Fields: TABLE1_ID int, primary key, Is Identity
           TABLE1_ITEMS nvarchar (50)

Sample Data:
 TABLE1_ID               |               TABLE1_ITEMS
-----------------------------------------------------------
               1                 | 8, 14, 73, 98
-----------------------------------------------------------
               2                 | 18, 47
-----------------------------------------------------------
               3                 | 3, 8, 9, 14, 19

Is there a logical SQL Query which can select all the records from TABLE1 where the number '8' is within the range of numbers in the TABLE_ITEMS?

So in this case record 1 and 3 would match but record 2 would not.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

try this
SELECT TABLE1_ID,TABLE1_ITEMS FROM TableName
WHERE CHARINDEX(',8,',',' + TABLE1_ITEMS + ',') > 0
