can you use an array?

$data = "859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902"

$my_array = explode(", ",$data)

code that takes the first number in the list 859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902 and then stores it in the
variable, $number, and then loops back and stores the second number, 482309, in $number and so on
would work perfect for me.

Are your numbers are as a string

$nums = "859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902"

or arrays

$nums = array(859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902);

Is the following you are looking for?
//using array
$nums = array(859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902);
 
foreach ($nums as $number) {
	echo "$number<br />";
}
 
 
//using string
$nums = "859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902";
 
$nums = split(",",$nums);	//splitted by comma
 
foreach ($nums as $number) {
	echo "$number<br />";
}

This echoes out the following:

859034
482309
7432890
483902
<?php
 
$nums = '859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902';
$array = explode(", ",$nums);
for ($i=0;$i<count($array);$i++)
{
    $number = $array[$i];
    echo $number;
    echo "<br />";
}
 
?>

maybe you want them to be stored for further references, see below
<?php
$numbers = "859034, 482309, 7432890, 483902";
 
$numbers_array = split(", ",$numbers);
 
extract($numbers_array, EXTR_PREFIX_ALL, "number");
 
 
echo $number_0;
echo "\n<br>";
echo $number_1;
echo "\n<br>";
echo $number_2;
echo "\n<br>";
echo $number_3;
 
?>
