In the data set I have a string variable with the names of several people.  However, I want to look at the relationship across each individual, so I am trying to separate the names.  

What I have done: expanded the observations based on how many individuals are in each observation's string variable.  Labeled the duplicate observations 1, 2, 3, etc. 

What I need now, is a command that will take the number in my duplicates and take the corresponding individual's name with respect to its position in the string variable, separated by a comma. 

Any insight would be helpful.
