Hello, I want to parse a string in SSIS. My strings looks like this:

CAT@@@DOG@@@yyyy
MOUSE@@@bbb@@@aaa
r@@@s@@@g

They are separated by @@@ and I need code that is able to pull the 1st or 2nd or 3rd characters.

Thanks.

Here is a splitter TVF that returns each data value as a row in a table. It relies on some SQL XML magic.



/*
USAGE:

SELECT [Value] FROM [dbo].[split_delimited_string]
('1||2||3||4||5||6||7||8||9||10||11||12||13||14||15||16||17||18||19||20','||')
WHERE Value IN (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,20)
SELECT [Value] FROM [dbo].[split_delimited_string]
('1;2;3;4;5;6;7;8;9;10;11;12;13;14;15;16;17;18;19;20',';')
SELECT [Value] FROM [dbo].[split_delimited_string]
('1[][]2[][]3[][]4[][]5[][]6[][]7[][]8[][]9[][]10[][]11[][]12[][]13[][]14[][]15[][]16[][]17[][]18[][]19[][]20','[][]')

*/
CREATE FUNCTION [dbo].[split_delimited_string]
(
@str NVARCHAR(MAX),
@sep NVARCHAR(MAX)
)
RETURNS @value TABLE (Value NVARCHAR(MAX))
AS
BEGIN

DECLARE @xml XML
SELECT @xml = CONVERT(XML,'<r>' + REPLACE(@str,@sep,'</r><r>') + '</r>')

INSERT INTO @value(Value)
SELECT t.value('.','NVARCHAR(MAX)')
FROM @xml.nodes('/r') AS x(t)

RETURN;
END

Recommend using Script Component in the Data flow. The split function is normally faster than anything in T-SQL and less complicated than most other options.

Or maybe let SSIS do all the work by defining @@@ as a column delimiter.


Help us to help you. For better, quicker and more-focused answers to your questions, consider following the advice in this link.

If the answer to your question can be found with a brief Google search, please perform the search yourself, rather than expecting one of the SSC members to do it for you.

Please surround any code or links you post with the appropriate IFCode formatting tags. It helps readability a lot.
