SQL - Splitting column values into separate rows

Last Modified: 2020-03-04
I do not think this is possible with SQL but I thought i would ask anyway.   I need to split a column into multiple rows.  

Table A:

Item ID               Kits Reference ID       Kits Reference Qty
---------            -------------------      --------------------
1                         100;500                       1;40
2                          200;820;910               45;32;56

As you can see each item record can have one or more reference ID's each separated by a ";".   In addition, each reference ID has a QTY.

Expected Output

Item ID               Kits Reference ID       Kits Reference Qty
---------            -------------------      --------------------
1                         100                                1
1                          500                               40
2                          200                               45
2                           820                              32
2                           910                              56
