You'll have to run each INSERT statement separately:

Dim i As Integer
Dim arr() As String

arr  = Split(YourList, ",")

For i = 0 to Ubound(arr)
  Currentdb.Execute "INSERT INTO TableA(Quantities) VALUES(" & arr(i) & ")"
Next i

the question is: what exactly do you need help with?
* inserting "a" record?
* splitting the list into values so you could run the insert one by one?
