Hi I'm new to Delphi

Can you tell me how to break apart the following string into 3 components

Modem Name, Delimeter, Modem stirng

where the original string is in the form

USR-14.4 - AT&F

Component 1 is variable in my list of strings and is"USR-14.4" in this expample

Component 2 is the delimeter and is " - " (space comma space) and is always the same.

Component 3 is the Modem Init string "AT&F' in this example and is also variable in the list of strings

I need to get just component 3 for writing to another part of my program

Thanks for the help

Chris
