    Accessing a list in SQL

    I have a list of certain data (basically a number) that is separated by commas.
    If I wanted to make conditions in my query to the database, what is the best way?


    code:

    SELECT *
    FROM attributes
    WHERE attribute_values = #form.searchsize#

    The #form.searchsize# (if your curious to what kind of variable, it is coldfusion) is a variable passed on through a form. I basically need the field attribute_values to be searched in a each record. Each attribute_values contains several size numbers. IE - 1,2,3,4,5,.... How would I be able to question the database if #form.searchsize# is one of these numbers in the list?

    Try the find_in_set() function. If it returns >0, then it's in the list.

    SELECT attribute_values
    FROM attributes
    WHERE FIND_IN_SET('#form.searchsize#',attribute_values)


    Something like this?

    I tried this and could not get it to work.

    Basically I need to know if the #form.searchsize# variable is within the data (separated by commas, therefore commas are the delimiter) in each table within the attribute_values field.

    attribute_values (MS Access Field)

    1,2,3,4,5
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7
    2,3,4,5,6,7
    5,6,7,8,9

    I need to check each row's attribute values and see if my #form.searchsize# variable is in it's list.

    Sorry, I guess find_in_set is just a mysql thing. I don't know Access, but I'd assume there's some sort of string search function.
    Maybe using IN would work:

    WHERE #form.searchsize# IN (attribute_values)

    Is there a "IN" in MSSQL? For example:

    Select ..... Where attribute_values IN #form.searchsize#
