I have to create a join of two tables with the following fields:


In User_x table grouplist comprises of list of groups a user belongs to separated by a semi colon. e.g. 12;78;65

Now I need to create a join where I get a list of all the users with the group they belong to.
The result set should look like this
User Groupname
Tom Group1
Peter Group2
Kathy Group2

and so on...
Actual SQL wil be appreciated.

Hello Nee,

See i think there is basically a problem in table design itself. First of all u should have the tables in the normalised form, at least in 1NF . Means u should not have more than one value or a list of values at the intersection of a row & column. After that if the tables r normalised means if they r designed in some way like :


& Groups(Groupid,Group_name)

then it will definately solve the problem.if u can have design like this they i can give u the solution for ur problem also.Atually this is what u should have.

Ok . Try it.
Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
