    Jaw drops … How can MS tout a shiny new version in 2017 that breaks compatibility with a fundamental installation option in previous versions. Do MS product teams actually talk to each other at all anymore? What about System Center and isolation of report servers for the different product components? OK, in that particular case we are luckily getting free SQL licenses, but it's still painful to have to spin up separate machines, and in the case of our small deployment, well it's just not viable. Goodbye System Center and SSRS, is that really what MS want?

    It’s a shame that this was submitted as just a “suggestion”. It should actually be listed as a “bug” because there’s only a comparatively small set of use cases where enumeration of the result set of elements is not important.

    I agree that an order column is required; one example use case is where two lists are passed in, and ordinal positions in one list correspond to positions in the other.

    Please see the related suggestion: STRING_SPLIT needs “RemoveEmptyEntries” option, like String.Split in .NET ( https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/2462002/ ).

    This kind of function is primarily needed for de-serializing previously serialized arrays of values of any type format-able as text.
    I therefore recommend to have the result set of this function work excellent with this use-case.

    With de-serialized arrays there is a need to…

    Most real use cases for this function are totally excluded without an ordinal column or at least a guarantee that order is preserved. Please add this functionality.
