Extract parts of a string after and before delimiters

Last Modified: 2019-12-02
I've a query I'm building against a SQL Server, in the query, I have a TEXT column that I need to break apart, and the break has to happen at a certain delimiter(s), I'm using the String_Split function, and I'm able to capture the first LEFT characters that are to the left of the FIRST delimiter (which is a ">" symbol), but the rest of the string is my primary problem now, I have another delimiter in the string, and it's of the same type, a ">" symbol, so here's an example.
The string: nu>11BcH123>nic1, I'm getting the (nu) out, but I need to get the (BcH123) out and into its own column, and then get the (nic1) into its own column as well.

Your attention is very much appreciated.
