I originally posted this on the new user forum but I think it should ask my questions here: Hi all, rookie here. I saw some old posts [02-05-2007 by sql_jr) that talk about being able to parse a a string in a column that is delimited by a '' character. In the replies is a reference to Nigel Rivett's function to return a table from a delimited string. http://www.mindsdoor.net/SQLTsql/ParseCSVString.html . If I had the following column, c12345 with the value "Cocuments and SettingssteveDesktopA-text-1.doc"(no quotes), How can I use the ParseCSVString.html or other code to get the filename, A-text-1.doc ? Thanks in advance!
