How to split single row to multi row

Hi Experts,
I want to split data from one row to multi rows

For example, I have a table with this columns and this data

COD   BEGIN    END
------------------------
ABC    3           5
BHG    4           7

I would like to create a query to return

COD   ITEM
--------------
ABC    3
ABC    4
ABC    5
BHG    4
BHG    5
BHG    6
BHG    7

Can you help me about this?
Thanks in advance
Leopoldo

Hi onoratoInformatica,

I'm pretty sure you will need some post processing (with php, asp, etc) after your db query.
Select your rows into a variable and iterate through the columns and reformat accordingly.

Hope this helps,

JD

Either you have to do what johndoeherty suggested or you'll have to write a Stored Procedure to achieve that if you want to share it at multiple front ends.

Hi,

If you're on SQL 2005 you can try:


WITH CTE AS (
      SELECT COD, [BEGIN] AS ITEM
            FROM TABLENAME
      UNION ALL
      SELECT t.COD, C.ITEM+1 AS ITEM
            FROM TABLENAME T
                  JOIN CTE C ON C.COD = T.COD AND T.[END] > C.ITEM
)
SELECT * FROM CTE ORDER BY COD;
