Hi To me it looks like you want to do a & (bitwise AND) on the binaries. Unfortunately for the length of the binaries that you are indicating this will not work in SQL Server. Splitting into chunks of 8 appears to work OK, but this would need to be thoroughly tested. Also this looks really ugly and there is bound to be a better way. with sampleBins as ( select bin1 = cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) , bin2 = cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(1 as binary(1)) + cast(0 as binary(1)) ) select SUM(LEN(REPLACE(REPLACE( CONVERT(varchar(MAX), CAST( CAST(SUBSTRING(b.bin1,((N  1)*8)+1,8) as bigint) & CAST(SUBSTRING(b.bin2,((N  1)*8)+1,8) as bigint) as varbinary(MAX)) ,1) ,'0',''),'x',''))) from sampleBins b cross apply (select top (((datalength(b.bin1)  1) / 8) + 1) N From Tally) t
