You can create a function to split the strings. Try the following function:
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.Split
(
	@RowData nvarchar(2000),
	@SplitOn nvarchar(5)
)  
RETURNS @RtnValue table 
(
	Id int identity(1,1),
	Data nvarchar(100)
) 
AS  
BEGIN 
	Declare @Cnt int
	Set @Cnt = 1

	While (Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)>0)
	Begin
		Insert Into @RtnValue (data)
		Select 
			Data = ltrim(rtrim(Substring(@RowData,1,Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)-1)))

		Set @RowData = Substring(@RowData,Charindex(@SplitOn,@RowData)+1,len(@RowData))
		Set @Cnt = @Cnt + 1
	End
	
	Insert Into @RtnValue (data)
	Select Data = ltrim(rtrim(@RowData))

	Return
END
