Trying to split an array on a tab

AMP
Hello,
I am trying to split an Array into another array. Each value in the
array has tab delimited strings.
I am getting:
Cannot implicitly convert type 'string[]' to 'string'
I am trying this:
string[] lineSeparators = new String[]{"\r\n"};
string[] Channel =
FileName.Split( lineSeparators, StringSplitOpti ons.None); //This part
works
string[] Sample = new string[Channel.Length];
string[] stringSeparator s = new String[] { "\t" };
foreach (string ArrayString in Channel)
{
int i = 0;
Sample[i] = ArrayString.Spl it(stringSepara tors,
StringSplitOpti ons.None);
i++;
}

Thanks
Mike

And it's right. You've got

string[] Sample

which means that every element of Sample is a string.

You're then trying:
Sample[i] = ArrayString.Spl it(stringSepara tors,
StringSplitOpti ons.None);

(and then reinitializing i next time round the loop, by the way)

string.Split returns an array of strings, not a single string - so you
quite possibly want

string[][] Sample = new string[Channel.Length][];

However, I suspect there's a rather better way of doing this. Could
you give an example of the input you've got, and the output you want?

Jon,
Its one long string.
There are \r\n's at the end of rows and and \t's at the end of
datapoints
I want each row to be an Array by itself.

We need an additional function in the String class. We need the ability to suppress empty fields, so that we can more effectively parse. Right now, multiple whitespace characters create multiple empty strings in the resulting string array.

If you split a string into an array using the split method, it's not working the way I'd expect it to. That doesn't mean it's wrong of course, but would anyone else agree it's working somewhat illogically? Here's a test I just put together that splits on "&". The test strings are: "a&b" = (Correct!) I expect array length 2 and I get 2 "a&" = (Incorrect!) I expect array length 1 but I get 2 "a" = (Correct!) I expect array length 1 and...
