Type Mismatch while using Split on an array...???

I've got some values stored in an array like so:

CustomInformation = 555-555-5555 | FedEx Ground | de | 123

I'm trying to get each piece into its own variable so I used Split:

Split(CustomInformation = 555-555-5555 | FedEx Ground | de | 123,"|")

Then, if I go ahead and print these values to the screen it works fine:

Response.Write(CustomInformationSplit(0) & "<br>" & CustomInformationSplit(1) & "<br>" & CustomInformationSplit(2) & "<br>" & CustomInformationSplit(3))

However, when I try and simply populate a new variable with the value of the first array value, the phone number, I'm getting a type mismatch error.

billingPhoneNumber = CustomInformation(0)

returns

Microsoft VBScript runtime  error '800a000d'
Type mismatch: 'CustomInformation'

I'm guessing it must be something to do with the -'s?  Is it trying to subtract 555 from 555 from 555?  How do I make this work?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  thanks!

I thought your array  name was CustomInformationSplit, but here you have:
billingPhoneNumber = CustomInformation(0)

Should be:
billingPhoneNumber = CustomInformationSplit(0)

Split should be
CustomInformationSplit = Split(YourData, "|")
0
