Hi,

According to your String Example, you can do it with the code below

Hope that helps
Dim strSample As String = "one, two, three, four, five, two, one,six,seven"
        Dim alCountWords As New ArrayList
        Dim htTimes As New Hashtable
        Dim vecWords() As String
        Dim intWord As Integer
        Dim strWord As String

        vecWords = strSample.Split(",")
        For intWord = 0 To vecWords.Length - 1
            strWord = vecWords(intWord).Trim
            If alCountWords.Contains(strWord) Then
                htTimes(strWord) = Int32.Parse(htTimes(strWord).ToString) + 1
            Else
                htTimes.Add(strWord, 1)
                alCountWords.Add(strWord)
            End If
        Next

        Dim strResults As String = ""
        For intWord = 0 To alCountWords.Count - 1
            If htTimes(alCountWords(intWord)) > 1 Then
                strResults &= alCountWords(intWord) & ","
            End If
        Next

        MsgBox(strResults)
