VB.Net - How to Work With Array Contents

Good Day Experts!

I am trying to figure out the best way to iterate through an Array, manipulate the data and then either save it in place or to a new Array.

I have parsed off the string of a Delete query after the Where.  So, for example I would have "Customer = '123' And Order = 'abc'"

Then I run the following code to split it apart on the And:
                    Dim ValueArray() As String
                    ValueArray = qryString.Split(":")

The Array contains:
                     Customer = '123'
                     Order = 'abc'  

I am intersted in stripping off all data before/including the = and getting rid of the single quotes leaving:
                      123
                      abc

I would then need the data back in the original array or a new one.

What is the best way you all can suggest to achieve this?

Thanks,

Try something like:
        Dim qryString As String = "Customer = '123' And Order = 'abc'"
        Dim ValueArray() As String = qryString.Split("And")
        For i As Integer = 0 To ValueArray.Length - 1
            If ValueArray(i).IndexOf("=") <> -1 Then
                ValueArray(i) = ValueArray(i).Split("=")(1).Trim
            End If
            ValueArray(i) = ValueArray(i).Trim("'")
            Debug.Print(i & " = " & ValueArray(i))
        Next
