Description

This step allows you to split a row containing a delimited field into multiple new rows, one per split value.
The original row is not delivered to following steps. The original field is left in each new row to assist in debugging or error handling.  It can be removed via a Select Values step if needed.

The original field must be a string field.
A new field name must be specified.
If the value type/format of the new row is not specified, the new field will use the same type/format as the original field.
