t-sql help

T-SQL:
In a stored procedure, have  input field varchar(200), see below table. Try to get output1 and output2 declare as  varchar(200).  Output1 will be distinct left of ‘:’ and Output2 will be distinct right ‘:’.  Both Output1 and Output2 will be use in a IN statement.

Thank you for helping!!

You could take below sample stored-procedure as the reference for your own:

create proc spSampleParser
	@strInput VARCHAR(200)
as
	-- format as XML
	declare @oXML XML
	select @oXML = CAST(('<I><O1>' + REPLACE(REPLACE(@strInput, ',', '</O2></I><I><O1>'),':','</O1><O2>') + '</O2></I>') AS XML)
	
	-- select output1, output2
	declare @Output1 varchar(200), @Output2 varchar(200)
	select	@Output1 = ISNULL((SELECT o1node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O1') AS oXML(o1node) FOR XML PATH('')), ''),
			@Output2 = ISNULL((SELECT o2node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O2') AS oXML(o2node) FOR XML PATH('')), '')

	-- remove trailing comma
	select	Output1 = SUBSTRING(@Output1, 1, LEN(@Output1) - 1), Output2 = SUBSTRING(@Output2, 1, LEN(@Output2) - 1)
return

Hi Duy Pham,

Thank you very much for your help.  I am lost in your code (I did not know any XML code), but the code/result works 90%.

Here are my re-write and I need the output1 and output2 to distinct the output which means output1 should be looks like: '136, 365' and output2 should be '"HMO", "PPO", "UNINSURED"':
DECLARE @ServiceID                  VARCHAR(200);
declare @oXML XML;
declare @Output1 varchar(200), @Output2 varchar(200);

--set @ServiceID      = '2:INSURED,281:INSURED';
set @ServiceID      = '136:HMO,365:HMO,136:PPO,365:UNINSURED';


select @oXML = CAST(('<I><O1>' + REPLACE(REPLACE(@ServiceID, ',', '</O2></I><I><O1>'),':','</O1><O2>') + '</O2></I>') AS XML)
-- select output1, output2
      
select      @Output1 = ISNULL((SELECT o1node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O1') AS oXML(o1node) FOR XML PATH('')), ''),
            @Output2 = ISNULL((SELECT o2node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O2') AS oXML(o2node) FOR XML PATH('')), '')

select      Output1 = SUBSTRING(@Output1, 1, LEN(@Output1) - 1),
            Output2 = SUBSTRING(@Output2, 1, LEN(@Output2) - 1)

Thank you very much for your help!!
You just need to add DISTINCT keyword before o1node.value and o2node.value as below:

create proc spSampleParser
	@strInput VARCHAR(200)
as
	-- format as XML
	declare @oXML XML
	select @oXML = CAST(('<I><O1>' + REPLACE(REPLACE(@strInput, ',', '</O2></I><I><O1>'),':','</O1><O2>') + '</O2></I>') AS XML)
	
	-- select output1, output2
	declare @Output1 varchar(200), @Output2 varchar(200)
	select	@Output1 = ISNULL((SELECT DISTINCT o1node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O1') AS oXML(o1node) FOR XML PATH('')), ''),
		@Output2 = ISNULL((SELECT DISTINCT o2node.value('.', 'varchar(200)') + ',' FROM @oXML.nodes('/I/O2') AS oXML(o2node) FOR XML PATH('')), '')

	-- remove trailing comma
	select	Output1 = SUBSTRING(@Output1, 1, LEN(@Output1) - 1), Output2 = SUBSTRING(@Output2, 1, LEN(@Output2) - 1)
return

Hi Duy,

The double quotes in output2 is for this string to use like:
x IN ("HMO", "PPO",...)
Hi Sharath,

Thank you for the help.  The input is a input field for stored procedure input, not in table.
