a(0) = "hello"
a(1) = "you"
a(2) = "can"
a(3) = "you"

If you are using VB6 it has this built in already.  Its called the Split function.

Oh, I see what you want...you want to use any one of those characters as a delimeter.  Sorry.

The only way to accomplish this (without looping as requested) is to replace all the delimiters you are interested in with something else so you can use the Split() function:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim a As Variant
   
    a = SplitDelimiter("hello you:can you?me", " :?")
    For i = LBound(a) To UBound(a)
        Debug.Print "a(" & i & ") = " & a(i)
    Next i
End Sub

Private Function SplitDelimiter(ByVal source As String, ByVal delimiters As String) As Variant
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim delimiter As String
   
    delimiter = Chr(1) & "/|\"" & Chr(1)" ' pick something unlikely to appear in the source string
    For i = 1 To Len(delimiters)
        source = Replace(source, Mid(delimiters, i, 1), delimiter)
    Next i
    SplitDelimiter = Split(source, delimiter)
End Function
