Project Description

I need some helps on sql server 2008. I have a hard time to figure out how to get back the data as I want.
The multiple ids in people field are stored in the same rows and seperated by pile(|),
Jobs column are doing the same.

I know It doesn't look right on database design, but the datatable is provided by 3rd parties,
so I have no choose to modify it.

I believe I need a store procedure\function or some sql server special function to do that

this is my tables

*Helpdesk Table
id People Jobs
100 1|2 7|8|9

*People Table
id FullName
1 Nick
2 John

*Jobs Table
id JobName
7 Software
8 Hardware
9 Network

So, I want to select the data like this way and return the data like this:

select id, ConvertFunc(People,'id','FullName') as NewPeople, ConvertFunc(Jobs,'id','JobName') as NewJobs from helpdesk

and return:
id NewPeople NewJobs
100 Nick, John Software, Hardware, Network
