Why does @Explode only give me the first item?

The problem is that @Explode stops when it encounters a space or a period. You need to replace them as shown below:

 TextSrting := @ReplaceSubstring(@ReplaceSubstring(@Implode(TextList;"~");" ";"^");".";"`");
 NewTextList := @Explode(TextString;"~")

This example replaces space with "^" and periods with "`" before you do the explode. If you use elements of the new textlist, remember to convert these characters back to spaces and periods.
