declare an arraylist and then assign it to mystring.spit(";")

and then repeat it with mystring.split("@")

string strToSplit = "dp@Duplicate Passport;sp@Stolen Passport;";

string[] items = strToSplit.Split(";");
foreach(string item in items)
{
    string[] ask = item.Split("@");
    // ask[0] will = "dp"
    // ask[1] will = "Duplicate Passport"
   // and it repeats.  What you do with it, would be up to you or how you want to store it.
}

string[] someString = "dp@Duplicate Passport;sp@Stolen Passport;".Remove(";").Split("@".ToCharArray());

string dp = someString[1];
string sp = someString[3];

You can't dynamically name a variable so you have to know the variable names first. You can also insert a loop and an if statement if the string may have the variables in a different order.

Cannot convert type 'string' to 'string[]'

stringbuilder sb = new stringbuilder();
 foreach (string key in Request.QueryString.Keys) //get the url string from querystring
        {
            //items data looks like this: "SP;ADP;FDD;DFD";
            string items = Request[key];

            string[] itemsarray = (string[])items;
            foreach (string item in items)
            {
                string[] x = item.Split(';');
                if (string[0] == "SP")
                  {
                     sb.append("sp = stolen passport");
                  }
               if (string [1] == "ADP")
                  {
                    sb.append("adp = active directory project");
                  }

You should know the name of the key coming in, or you could be looking for trouble with all those hackers putting things in the query strings and hitting websites.

on the URL you would see somekey=SP;ADP;FDD;DFD so you would use Request.QueryString["somekey"]
You cannot take a string and convert it to an array without Split or another method that splits them into items.  Look at the code below and see if that is what you are looking to do.

stringbuilder sb = new stringbuilder();
string key = "somekey";

//items data looks like this: "SP;ADP;FDD;DFD";
string items = Request.QueryString[key];

string[] itemsarray = items.Split(';');

foreach (string item in items)
{
      switch(item)
      {
           case "SP":
                sb.Append("sp=stolen passport");
                break;
           case "ADP":
                sb.Append("adp = active directory project");
                break;
      }
}
