Trying to split an array on a tab

P: n/a
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,StringSplitOptions.N one); //This part
works
string[] Sample = new string[Channel.Length];
string[] stringSeparators = new String[] { "\t" };
foreach (string ArrayString in Channel)
{
int i = 0;
Sample[i] = ArrayString.Split(stringSeparators,
StringSplitOptions.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.Split(stringSeparators,
StringSplitOptions.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.
