Prioritised list to table

By Keith Henry,

I wrote this to allow me to send a priority list of int ids.

This takes a "," seperated list of integers and puts them into a table, along with an [insorder] field that allows you to sort them.

eg 2,6,3,1,7 becomes

ints insorder
---- --------
1    7
2    1
3    5
6    3
7    9

Depending on what sort of query plan you need you could move the primary key to the insorder field
