Could you maybe send us your table definition, some example data and an
expected output?

Subject: REGEX

I am familiar with regex in general, but here is what I want to do...

I have a field that contains 6 actual data items separated by the |
symbol. 
Like this...

a|b|c|d|e

What I need to do is build a list of distinct values between each pipe,
so 
that I get 5 arrays of values, one array for each of the drop-down boxes
I 
want to create.

The select statement I need needs to say...

Give me a distinct entries matching any character up to the first | 
character. Or between the first and second |char, etc.

Is there a way to do this with regex?
