SQL Query parsing one field into many

275 Views
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have a sql server database that stores a multiline customer address in a single field. I found out that a carriage return is what separates each line.

Here is an example of data

ADDRESS
*************
123 Main StApt 1Some City, MyState 12345
*************

The address shows up in our erp as
*****************************************
123 Main St
Apt 1
Some City, MyState 12345
*******************************************

What I want to extract are the two address lines in a SQL query:
123 Main St as address1
Apt 1 as address2

Any suggestions? Thanks!
