Splitting a string into 3 vars

Hello all,

 

Got a question about splitting a string. I have been searching for this and I am sure it is easy and I am hoping you gurus can help me out once again. I need to split a string into 3 variables. Each piece is seperated by a hyphen. Here are examples of the strings I need to split. This is running in a script to import data from one table to another.

 

Gildan - Heavy Blend™ Hooded Sweatshirt - 18500
Hanes - PrintProXP Ultimate Cotton® Hooded Sweatshirt - F170

Gildan - DryBlend™ Hooded Sweatshirt - 12500

 

As it loops through the records that contain these lines, I am aiming to set these as 3 variables....

 

$brand

$desc

$model

 

If there is a 1 line solution, that is great, but if it needs to be set in 3 pieces (3 set variable script steps), that is cool too.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks folks,

 

Nate
