Passing N values from SQL table to SQL function and return back the results

Last Modified: 2016-03-09
Hi Experts,

I have 10 values stored inside a SQL table column and want to pass them to my function below and return me the results. So, what the steps to achieve this?

ALTER FUNCTION [dbo].[PassVariableList] ( @ConsumerName nvarchar(255) )
SELECT C.ConsumerID, C.ConsumerName, C.CurrentlyConsumer, COUNT(distinct DSI.ServiceID) #OfServicesRelatedDatasets,COUNT(distinct DSI.DatasetID) #OfRequiredDatasest
FROM Consumers C
INNER JOIN Services S ON C.ConsumerID = S.ConsumerID
INNER JOIN Datasets_Services_Intersection DSI ON S.ServiceID = DSI.ServiceID
INNER JOIN Datasets DS ON DSI.DatasetID = DS.DatasetID 
C.ConsumerName like N'%'+@ConsumerName+'%'
GROUP BY C.ConsumerID, C.ConsumerName, C.CurrentlyConsumer
order by #OfServicesRelatedDatasets desc
