Dear experts,

I have a problem of separating some text with String.Split() function, the text is like this

The text is look like this:
"1", "Hi", "Test"
"2", "Hello", "B"

I have learned here to divied it by (,) chat, by this code:
Dim values() As String
    For Each sLine In arrText
            values = sLine.Split(",")
            For i As Integer = 0 To values.GetUpperBound(0)
                Console.WriteLine(i & ": " & values(i))

The output will be like this:
0: "1"
1:  "Hi"
2:  "Test"
0: "2"
1:  "Hello"
2:  "B"

How can sepearte them again by this (") char, I guess there is sonething like this in other langugeraes:
  values = sLine.Split('"%"')

So I want the output like this:

0: 1
1:  Hi
2:  Test
0: 2
1:  Hello
2:  B

Hope to find answers and thanks in advannce,
