Most programming languages have a command that allows a process to sleep (or wait) before continuing. SQL Server is no exception. Since SQL Server 2005 there has support for a sleep command through the use of the WAITFOR command.
SQL Server 2012 makes it a lot easier to format a number with commas, but let’s face it… previous versions haven’t been so nice to us. Here are the easiest ways that I know to format a number with commas.
SQL Server 2012+
SELECT FORMAT(1234567890, '###,###,###') AS 'FormattedNumber'
SQL Server 2008 And Previous
SELECT REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR(50), (CAST(1234567890 AS money)), 1), '.00', '') AS FormattedNumber
