I have values in a variable(term) as (2004,2005,2006,....2011). I would like to split the term into individual year and store in another variable say X.

Would you please help me with this. Thanks.

use this functions, then

select dbo.splitNGet('2004,2005,2006,2011',3,',')

to get the third element...
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[fnSplit](    
@sInputList VARCHAR(8000), -- List of delimited items   
@sDelimiter VARCHAR(8000) = ',' -- delimiter that separates items
) RETURNS @List TABLE (n int, item VARCHAR(8000))
BEGIN
DECLARE @sItem VARCHAR(8000);
DECLARE @sRow int = 1;

WHILE CHARINDEX(@sDelimiter,@sInputList,0) <> 0 
BEGIN 
	SELECT  
	@sItem=RTRIM(LTRIM(SUBSTRING(@sInputList,1,CHARINDEX(@sDelimiter,@sInputList,0)-1))),  
	@sInputList=RTRIM(LTRIM(SUBSTRING(@sInputList,CHARINDEX(@sDelimiter,@sInputList,0)+LEN(@sDelimiter),LEN(@sInputList))))  
	IF LEN(@sItem) > 0
		INSERT INTO @List SELECT @sRow, @sItem 
		set @sRow = @sRow + 1;  
	END
	IF LEN(@sInputList) > 0 INSERT INTO @List SELECT @sRow, @sInputList -- Put the last item in
	RETURN
END;

CREATE function [dbo].[splitNGet](
@sInputList VARCHAR(8000), -- List of delimited items 
@n int,  
@sDelimiter VARCHAR(8000) = ',' -- delimiter that separates items
)RETURNS varchar(8000)
begin
	declare @item varchar(8000);

	select @item = item from dbo.fnSplit(@sInputList, @sDelimiter)
	where n=@n;

	return @item;
end;

or you can use

select * from dbo.fnSplit('2004,2005,2006,2011',',')

1      2004
2      2005
3      2006
4      2011

select dbo.splitNGet('2004,2005,2006,2011',3,',')

2006
