TSQL @Var with multiple lines to table

Hi,

I have a storage Procedure that receives a Parameter (@Par2) with a string with multiple lines.

each line contain a serial number which is alphanumeric.
How can I run an insert a line into a table per each line on the @Par2

Example  the @Par2 as the following information:
APA7NB10A2900061
APA7NB10A2900062
APA7NB10A2900063
APA7NB10A2900064
APA7NB10A2900065
APA7NB10A2900066

I want to insert each of these lines into a #TEMP table with 1 column only

I know this cant be done with a BULK INSERT but honestly not sure how to parse the text per line.

thanks

If you have a common element in your serial number e.g. start with AP or they have a space between them then you can use this function:
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[Split]
(    
    @RowData NVARCHAR(MAX),
    @Delimeter NVARCHAR(MAX)
)
RETURNS @RtnValue TABLE 
(
    ID INT IDENTITY(1,1),
    Data NVARCHAR(MAX)
) 
AS
BEGIN 
    DECLARE @Iterator INT
    SET @Iterator = 1

    DECLARE @FoundIndex INT
    SET @FoundIndex = CHARINDEX(@Delimeter,@RowData)

    WHILE (@FoundIndex>0)
    BEGIN
        INSERT INTO @RtnValue (data)
        SELECT 
            Data = LTRIM(RTRIM(SUBSTRING(@RowData, 1, @FoundIndex - 1)))

        SET @RowData = SUBSTRING(@RowData,
                @FoundIndex + DATALENGTH(@Delimeter) / 2,
                LEN(@RowData))

        SET @Iterator = @Iterator + 1
        SET @FoundIndex = CHARINDEX(@Delimeter, @RowData)
    END
    
    INSERT INTO @RtnValue (Data)
    SELECT Data = LTRIM(RTRIM(@RowData))

    RETURN
END

The only common element is the end of the line (CRLF).
the Serial number can be completely different and with different length , depending on the type of the product that the operator is working.
example, if is router they might start by M70***** or D90*****, if is a device will be 130****(Len = 12 or 13)

That is still ok, just embed the delimeter as char(13) or char(10). They are carriage return and line feed respectively, so they should work perfectly.

Thanks Guys.
Both solutions worked (with a copy paste) but OCDan was faster and I prefer it on the function :-)

Thank you for your very fast reactions
