It appears this adds an extra "ΒΆ" at the end of the list, resulting in an extra line that is blank. Is there a way to eliminate this? Otherwise, this CF works great.

Hi Mike! Late response, but in case anyone finds this and is curious - I was able to get the desired result by doing the below. Cheers!

Case ( ValueCount ( Text ) > 0 ;

List(Reverse ( RightValues ( Text ; ValueCount ( Text ) - 1 ) ); GetValue(Text; 1));

GetValue(Text; 1)
