That's great. I'd still like to learn how to deal with spaces for my case, as educational now, more than functional. I will probably be happier using what you have already developed for delimiter splitting.

Thanks,
Chris

Learning something new on every visit to SSC. Hoping to pass it on to someone else.

It's easy. In T-SQL, Spaces are no different than any other character except...
1. '' = '{one space}' = '{virtually any number of spaces}' for comparison purposes.
2. Trailing spaces are not recognized by LEN but are recognized by DATALENGTH.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair
