Dear Statalist,

I am trying to find a string function (or equivalent series of code lines)
to accomplish the following. I have a string variable which contains
various company names, eli lilly & co, for example. I want to break this
string into 4 separate data points, namely eli, lilly, &, co. The delimeter
is a space. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,
Terra
