Sql – How to execute Table valued function

sqlsql-serversql-server-2008tsql

I have following function which returns Table .

create Function FN(@Str varchar(30))
  returns
  @Names table(name varchar(25))
  as 
  begin 

      while (charindex(',', @str) > 0)
      begin
      insert into @Names values(substring(@str, 1, charindex(',', @str) - 1))
     set  @str = substring(@str, charindex(',', @str) + 1, 100)  
      end
      insert into @Names values(@str)  

      return
  end

Could any one please explain me how to run this function.

Best Solution

A TVF (table-valued function) is supposed to be SELECTed FROM. Try this:

select * from FN('myFunc')
