HOw to parse multiple text data into seperate fields

I am analyzing survey data that I have imported into Access.  One field has multiple text strings (up to six) separated by semi colons.  I am looking for the easiest way to parse this field into multiple fields.  Thanks for any insight.

use a function like this

Function fnParseInfo(vString As Variant, idx As Integer, Optional Delimiter As String = ";") As String

   Dim myArray() As String
   myArray = Split(vString, Delimiter)

   If idx < 0 Or idx > UBound(myArray) + 1 Then
      fnParseInfo = "Null"
      fnParseInfo = myArray(idx - 1)

   End If

End Function
