sql string operation - something like strtoken

Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I have a long string that holds data1$data2$data3$data4$ and so on.
I need to write some utility function that will extract the data part. The string can hold any number of datas concatenated by $

Any ideas on what str function I can use.
