Creates a one-dimensional array from the String.
result = source.Split([delimiter])
|result||String array||Array resulting from breaking source into elements using delimiter as the field delimiter.|
|source||String||Source string to be parsed into an array.|
|delimiter||String||Optional field delimiter used to parse Source into array elements. If delimiter is omitted, then a space is used as the delimiter.|
Use the Split function to create a new String array from a list of elements (or fields) that are separated by a delimiter. If the optional parameter, delimiter, is not passed, a single space is assumed as the delimiter. If the delimiter is an empty string, the source string is split into characters.
Split works exactly the same as ToArray.
The section of code specifies the comma delimiter and the second uses the default delimiter. They place each field into an array element, producing a three-element array. The last code section parses the string into individual characters.
Var s As String
s = "Adam,Aardvark,Accountant"
anArray = s.Split(",") // produces 3-element array
anArray = s.Split("") // produces array of individual characters
