In VB I am building a string which I am passing into my stored procedure as a varchar(MAX) variable

The string looks like this

Larry,100|jane,125|Bill,75

I want to parse this into
col1      col2
Larry     100
Jane       125
Bil           75

Hi,

You would have to use an sql cursor. Are you inserting the results in a table?

You joggled my memory with the "Table" comment

I remember getting some code from angelll years ago.

SELECT      MAX(CASE WHEN row_num % 2 = 1 THEN Value END) hsid,
        MAX(CASE WHEN row_num % 2 = 0 THEN Value END) hours
FROM      dbo.ParmsToList(@list, ',') d
GROUP BY(row_num - 1)/ 2

using the function dbo.ParmsToList, code being here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Miscellaneous/A_1536-delimited-list-as-parameter-what-are-the-options.html

you can do it without a "cursor":
select left( f.value, charindex(',', f.value) - 1) col1
, substring( f.value, charindex(',', f.value) + 1, len(f.value))  col2 
  from dbo.ParmsTolist('Larry,100|jane,125|Bill,75', '|') f

angelll,
I have received some great help from you for the past 10 years or so.

Usually, I just need to take a moment and look through what you gave me in the past already

Hi,

If you want (i don't know if you can) to reallocate the points, it is fine by me. After all i really didn't think that was of much help. I really expected to just start a conversation and then give you an answer.

:)

Thanks anyways,
Giannis
