Excel Formula to Pull Data from Text String

Hello -

Based on the attached example I am looking for a formula that will pull the text between the 3rd and 4th "~" in the string.  So the result from cell A1 would be alpha,  Result from cell A4 would be ZT, etc.  All results can be placed in column B.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
