Your question is at best incomplete.

For starters the code you posted does not define '@LOCATION'. So you are certainly never going to get a city or state from that.

Also I am just ignoring what "all records" means since it doesn't mean anything for the code posted.

I think your requirements are lacking. Based on your question you think you should be able to handle a value with no comma. But your code does not differentiate that. A value without a comma could be EITHER a city or a state and the requirements, not the code must define that.

Your code works, if @LOCATION is defined, for the following cases.
- City and state is provided.
- City with comma is provided.
- State with comma is provided.

It doesn't work if the comma is lacking but, as I said, that is failure in the requirements not the code (at this point.)

Additionally SUBSTRING will never return null unless @LOCATION is null. So the subsequent if checks will only do something if @location is null.
