Function Split(ByVal Text As String, Optional ByVal Delimiter As String = " ", _
  Optional ByVal Limit As Long = -1, Optional CompareMethod As _
  VbCompareMethod = vbBinaryCompare) As Variant

  Dim length As Long
  Dim startIndex As Long
  Dim endIndex As Long
  length = Len(Text)
  startIndex = 1
  Do While startIndex <= length And resCount <> Limit
    ' get the next delimiter
    endIndex = InStr(startIndex, Text, Delimiter, CompareMethod)
    If endIndex = 0 Then endIndex = length + 1
    ' make room in the array, if necessary
    If resCount > UBound(res) Then
      ReDim Preserve res(0 To resCount + 99) As String
    End If
    ' store the new element
    res(resCount) = Mid$(Text, startIndex, endIndex - startIndex)
    resCount = resCount + 1
    startIndex = endIndex + Len(Delimiter)
  ' trim unused values
  ReDim Preserve res(0 To resCount - 1) As String

  ' return the array inside a Variant
