Parse Memo Field from linked table

Hi,
I have created a linked table in my database.  The table is linked to a MS Outlook e-mail folder.  One of the fields in the linked table is called tbxContents.  This field contains data that was submitted via a webform.  The contents of the field look like this:

Company=Millicent Pty Limited
Name=Terry L. Farmer 1
Address1=Address1
Address2=Address1
City=City1
State=State1
Zip=Zip1
Country=USA
EmailAddress=tfarmer@millicent.com 1
REMOTE_HOST: 198.12.16.4

I have created a form that shows the contents of my linked table.  I would like to create a button on this form that parses and writes the values following the "=" sign of each line above to their own field on a sub form in a separate table.

Months ago, I was provided with code from EE that worked great.  Now, however, the e-mail form that I receive contains an additional bit of information (REMOTE_HOST: 198.12.16.4).  The EE code will not process (Run time error 5)  with this new line of data (presumably b/c the last line of data does not contain an "=" sign??).  I'm not sure if it will be easier to modify the attached code or ask for something new?

Thanks for your help.
