I need to retrieve all values between @p_ and space from a string into an array in VBA.

For example, from this string:
"<willbe name=""Current24' value='if(g_movsum(loan_nid;;;current_flag;24;@p_lag )=24;1;0)'/> <willbe name=@p_name value=@p_value *(Current12)'/>"
I need an array with: @p_lag, @p_name, @p_value

Perhaps:

Function GetPdata(strIn As String)
   Dim matches
   Dim asOut() As String
   Dim n As Long
   
   With CreateObject("vbscript.regexp")
      .Pattern = "(@p_[^ ]+)"
      .Global = True
      If .test(strIn) Then
      Set matches = .Execute(strIn)
      ReDim asOut(matches.Count - 1)
      For n = 0 To matches.Count - 1
         asOut(n) = matches(n)
      Next n
         GetPdata = asOut
      Else
         GetPdata = ""
      End If
   End With

End Function
