I have a table that contains a concatenated field delimited by colons. The field contains approximately six values I want to house as separate columns on the table. How can I strip the concatenated field into the individual values and add them as columns to the table?
Unless the columns happen to have exactly the same length every time youperform this operation, there is nothing in standard SQL that will help.
If the columns were exactly the same length, you could use a substringfunction to pull out each component. You would have to check yourparticular server’s documentation on the availability of text functionssince each product varies.
