Access query split function


In an Access query in design mode, I need a simple way to split a string.  It will have more than three values.

Let's say my field Apple = "Hello,my,name,is,joel"

I want to do this:

Field A: Split ([Apple], "," 4)

The result should be "is".

Thanks for your help,

I'm sorry, I forgot how to get the following inserted into a function.  Can you help me?  I understand the second part though.

Public Function ParseText(TextIn As String, SplitChar As String, X) As Variant
On Error Resume Next
Dim var As Variant
var = Split(TextIn, SplitChar, -1)
ParseText = var(X - 1)
End Function
