Hi, use the split method and specify a delimiter, it'll return a string array with each number on a seperate index:

string accountNumbers = this.comboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString(); //get the value
string[] accountNumberArray = accountNumbers.Split('|'); //split it

foreach (string actNum in accountNumberArray) //loop through array
{
     //use actNum here
}
