Could be a problem because they are not really in the same field at all; they are in multiple records and only displayed in one field.

Why do you need to do this?  If you can explain the purpose then maybe we can suggest a solution.

Yes, you need some function.
split function can split separated string into substrings
Dim A() as string
A = split("12345,123,543,555",",")
A(0) will be equal to 12345 etc.
