Hi I need help parsing a group of comma delimited strings separated by { and }.

My regex for splitting is: ,(?=(?:[^\"]*\"[^\"]*\")*(?![^\"]*\"))

Sample source string is: "String",12345,{1,$2.00},"LastName, FirstName"

Currently it is splitting 5 items: [ ""String"" , "12345" , "{1" , "$2.00}" , "LastName, FirstName" ]

I want it to split 4 items: [ ""String"" , "12345" , "{1, $2.00}" , "LastName, FirstName" ]
