I have a field that has multiple values I would like to select. it contains 10,20,21,23,90. I am trying to be able to write this out not using a stored procedure. I tried using LIKE and IN but I can only use 1 division at a time.

WHERE ([div-code] LIKE @division)

End result I would like to get is @division 10, 23 <enter>

Data shows me all records that are from Division 10 and 23.

First of all IN is translated as OR e.g. in(10,23), means 10 or 23, not and.

Two ways to do so
1)not an optimized approach
WHERE ','+@division+',' like ','+[Div-Code]+',' -- If Div-Code is not varchar then you'll need to convert it to varchar e.g. convert(varchar,[Div-Code])

2)an Optimize approach
Declare/Create a (temporary) table and convert the CSV parameter value into tabular format. then simply join the temporary table with the actual table based on respective columns
