How to parse a comma separated string into a SQL table

In the spirit of laziness, I wanted a slightly simpler answer. I prompt the use to enter a comma separated list of customers, and parse them into a table in SQL. Then, I join that table to the customer master table in my application. Or you could do a ‘WHERE CUSTNMBR IN (SELECT CUSTNMBR FROM @MYTABLE)’
