DECLARE @NextString NVARCHAR(40)
DECLARE @Pos INT
DECLARE @NextPos INT
DECLARE @String NVARCHAR(40)
DECLARE @Delimiter NVARCHAR(40)

SET @String = 'General Motors, 30001 Van Dyke Ave, Warren, MI, 48090'
SET @Delimiter = ','
SET @String = @String + @Delimiter
SET @Pos = charindex(@Delimiter,@String)

WHILE (@pos <> 0)
BEGIN
SET @NextString = substring(@String,1,@Pos - 1)
SELECT @NextString -- Show Results
SET @String = substring(@String,@pos+1,len(@String))
SET @pos = charindex(@Delimiter,@String)
END

This returns:

General Motors

30001 Van Dyke Ave

I need columns:

General Motors         30001 Van Dyke Ave        Warren       MI         48090

This works for a single value but how can I incorporate it into a select statement used to insert into a customer address table?

I am new to this function and a SQL newbie,  all I am looking for is a little guidance on how to get the output I need and how I can have it load from a table based on the address field I have.
