If I have a field with values such as:


S/M BOX WITH WO# 00287460
S/M BOX WITH WO# 00287460,00341658,00358941
S/M BOX WITH WO# 00287460,00369852 
I want to pull each of those work orders out individually, but I do not know how many there may be in each record. So, how would you walk through that field and pull out each 8 digit work order? They will be comma separated and they will always be 8 digits with the first two being 00 for the foreseeable future.
