I'm trying to create a procedure which will take in a list of type varchar as a parameter and then loop through and extract out the separate values from the list which are delimited by a comma, convert the extracted segment to a float and then store each indivisual value in a table.

I've not got a clue where to start, can someone please provide some suggestions.
