Split User Defined Function (updated)

By kgayda,

Since T-SQL has no array data type, passing delimited strings is a great way to send a variable number of parameters to a function or stored procedure.  This function behaves similarly to the VBScript function or Javascript String.split method.  You pass it a delimited string and the delimiter where the split should occur.  Returns a table data type as a psuedo array.  I have added to my model database so a copy is made for all new DBs
