You can use charIndex

cud u give an example, to split it on basis of " | " .....


Fetching the data is not a big deal. You can fetch the data in any format. Now the question is you are using a string column to hold the data of three respective columns. So, here you can use substring function of sql server to solve your problem.

All the best.

i am giving you a function which will work as split function. and return a table

--select * from computds.dbo.split('CON|CON1|CON2','|')
Create FUNCTION [dbo].[Split](@String varchar(max), @Delimiter char(1))
returns @temptable TABLE (items varchar(max))
    declare @idx int
    declare @slice varchar(max)

    select @idx = 1
        if len(@String)<1 or @String is null  return

    while @idx!= 0
        set @idx = charindex(@Delimiter,@String)
        if @idx!=0
            set @slice = left(@String,@idx - 1)
            set @slice = @String

            insert into @temptable(Items) values(@slice)

        set @String = right(@String,len(@String) - @idx)
        if len(@String) = 0 break
