TSQL q

Hello,

I have a comma seperated string and a function called SPLIT that parses it and returns a table with one value per row.

1,2,3,4,5,6
gives
1
2
3
4
5
6

I now want to insert these values into a table that has three columns.

MyId, CodeA, CodeB

where MyId is 10, and CodeA is 20.

So i will get

10, 20, 1
10, 20, 2
10, 20, 3
10, 20, 4
10, 20, 5
10, 20, 6

It must be very simple but i cannot get my head round the insert statement.

How do i do it?

Can you post here a sample of the original data (where that 10 and 20 comes from)?

If you are using a separate PL like java,c# or scripting language like VBS,etc. which will send the insert statement to database.
Then you can write multiple loops to handle the same and send separate insert statement to database for each value in the first table generated by SPLIT function.

10 and 20 are constants.....

so insert (MyId, CodeA, CodeB) values (10, 20, <and here the parsed strings from the function Slit>)

I could do it (pseudo code)

insert (MyId, CodeA, CodeB) values (10, 20, string[1] );
insert (MyId, CodeA, CodeB) values (10, 20, string[2] );
insert (MyId, CodeA, CodeB) values (10, 20, string[3] );
insert (MyId, CodeA, CodeB) values (10, 20, string[4] );

etc

but i guess uts possible with one line of tsql and a clever way of using the rows returned by split.

Without knowing anything about your function, perhaps something like this?

a lot depends on how you normally call that function and what it returns (assuming it returns a table)


select 10 as const1, 20 as const2 , r.*
from ( select dbo.split('1.2.3.4.5.6')  )  AS r
