Dear All,

We have a scenario, where For each Application_ID, Application_Name is having multi-value and delimited.

we would like the data loaded into individual rows, in the following manner -

Example: Application_Name is multi-value and delimited (A:B:C)

Application_ID Application_Name
1 A:B:C
2 D:E:F

Desired Output:

Row 1: 1 A
Row 2: 1 B
Row 3: 1 C
Row 4: 2 D
Row 5: 2 E
Row 6: 2 F

How do I accomplish this?

Thanks in Advance
Anil
