Hi Eric,

You can use replace all \n and "," (comma) characters with a "|" (pipe) then cast the resulting string to a string[].


string s = TEST-123.description; // text to parse
s = replace(s, "\n", "|");
s = replace(s, ",", "|");
string [] array = s;

just what i need.

thanks florin..

And would you have a tip how to, while splitting the string based on commas, to ignore the commas inside double quotes?

Many systems when they export to CSV will put columns that contain commas into quotes. E.g.

column1, column2, column3, "column4,test",column5
