Hello Experts.  I have a Stored Procedure that I need to be able to pass a parameter into an IN clause.  

Create Procedure dbo.MyProc

	@ProdCode Varchar(8)
	AS
	
Select	*
From	dbo.Products
Where	ProdCode In (@ProdCode)

----------------------------------------------

Exec dbo.MyProc
@ProdCode = 'LITE,SINK,FAUCET'

Open in new window


From what I understand I may have to create a function to pass this through.  Any direction here is greatly appreciated.

-- First, create this function:

SET ANSI_NULLS OFF
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON
GO
-- Returns a single-column table from a delimited string
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[csv1] (@Source VARCHAR(MAX), @rowDelim VARCHAR(max)=',')
    RETURNS @Result TABLE (ID int identity, col1 varchar(MAX))
    WITH SCHEMABINDING
AS
BEGIN
      IF isNull(@rowDelim,'') in (char(10),'')
      BEGIN
            SELECT @rowDelim = char(13)+char(10)
      END
      ELSE
      BEGIN
            SELECT @Source = replace( @Source, @rowDelim+char(13), @rowDelim )
            SELECT @Source = replace( @Source, @rowDelim+char(10), @rowDelim )
      END

      SELECT @Source = rtrim(ltrim(@Source))
      SELECT @Source = @Source+@rowDelim  WHERE RIGHT(@Source,1) != @rowDelim

      DECLARE @rowDelimPos int=0, @StartShift int=1, @LenSource int=len(@Source)
      WHILE @StartShift <= @LenSource
      BEGIN
            SELECT @rowDelimPos = charindex( @rowDelim, @Source, @StartShift )
            INSERT INTO @Result VALUES ( substring(@Source,@StartShift,@rowDelimPos-@StartShift) )
            --INSERT INTO @Result VALUES ( nullIf(substring(@Source,@StartShift,@rowDelimPos-@StartShift),'') )
            SELECT @StartShift = @rowDelimPos + len(@rowDelim)
      END

      RETURN
END
GO

-- Then, in your procedure you can do this:

Select      *
From      dbo.Products
Where      ProdCode In (select col1 from dbo.csv1(@ProdCode))

-- correction, need to pass in the delimiter to the function:

Where      ProdCode In (select col1 from dbo.csv1(@ProdCode, ',' ))

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks for the reply knightEknight.  I ran it and this is only passing the first parameter through the IN clause.  From my example, the query only returns values for LITE.  The SINK and FAUCET values don't get make it in.

please run this test and post the result:

select * from dbo.csv1( 'LITE,SINK,FAUCET', ',' )

It returns as rows in a table.

ID      col1
1      LITE
2      SINK
3      FAUCET

Got it.  The parameter @ProdCode was set to varchar(8), which was cutting off the string when when the parameter was used in the stored procedure.  Changed it to varchar(2000) and all is good.
