Hi enrique_aeo,

Create a below function to your database and pass the parameter to it.


CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[CSVToTable] (@InStr VARCHAR(MAX))

RETURNS @TempTab TABLE

   (SSNSoftwareSerialNumber Varchar(50) not null)

AS

BEGIN

    ;-- Ensure input ends with comma

	SET @InStr = REPLACE(@InStr + ',', ',,', ',')

	DECLARE @SP INT

DECLARE @VALUE VARCHAR(1000)

WHILE PATINDEX('%,%', @INSTR ) <> 0 

BEGIN

   SELECT  @SP = PATINDEX('%,%',@INSTR)

   SELECT  @VALUE = LEFT(@INSTR , @SP - 1)

   SELECT  @INSTR = STUFF(@INSTR, 1, @SP, '')

   INSERT INTO @TempTab(SSNSoftwareSerialNumber) VALUES (@VALUE)

END

	RETURN

END

Open in new window



SELECT SSNSoftwareSerialNumber FROM dbo.CSVToTable(@user_panama)

you won't be able to do it like this. You will need to convert your variable into a table. Have a look at http://emoreau.com/Entries/Blogs/2015/04/Just-learned-a-nifty-t-SQL-trick-this-morning.aspx for an example

this is NOT working:
 declare @user_panama nvarchar(55) = 'MSANCHEZ' + ',' + 'VDIAZ';

It will only work if you pass the parameter like this 'MSANCHEZ','VDIAZ'  not like MSANCHEZ,VDIAZ

declare @user_panama nvarchar(55) = '''MSANCHEZ''' + ',' + '''VDIAZ''';
select @user_panama;
