Try this :

Sub Macro1()
    Dim SplitValue As Variant
        SplitValue = Split(ActiveCell.Value, ",")
            ActiveSheet.Range("B1").Select
          For I = 0 To UBound(SplitValue)
            ActiveCell.Value = SplitValue(I)
            ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
          Next I
End Sub

The following should do what you require quite quickly.
(This assumes that your data has the "|" seperator for titles and commas for the values as per your question)

Sub mySplit()
Dim r As Range
Dim d, a

Set r = Range("A1:A3")

d = Join(Application.Transpose(r), ",,")
d = Replace(d, "|", ",")
a = split(d, ",")
Range("B1").Resize(UBound(a) + 1) = Application.Transpose(a)

End Sub

Open in new window

See attached example
