How To Insert New Line Characters into Strings?
If you want to break a string into multiple lines, you need to insert new line characters
into the string. With some client tools like SQL Server Management Studio,
it is not so easy to insert a new line character.
One work around is to use the CHAR(int) function to generated new line character and other
special characters with their code values:
- CHAR(9) - Generates the tab character.
- CHAR(10) - Generates the line feed (new line) character.
- CHAR(13) - Generates the carriage return character.
The tutorial examples below gives you a good example
PRINT 'Welcome to '+CHAR(10)+'FYIcenter.com';
PRINT 'Current date and time is '
Current date and time is May 19 2007 7:30PM
