How to retreive data from a field that contains a "|" symbol


Hopefully my title won't confuse anyone .

Well I am trying to create a group which would display an employee name(s).

In my case, the value comes from a field which can contain multiple values separated by a "|" symbol. See picture below.

I am pretty sure I will have to write a formula for this but simply don't know where to begin or how to write it.

Table use in this example is "ProductionProjectGroups" and will be linking this table to the "Employees" table which will display the actual employee name.

Does anyone knows how to display data if there is a "|" symbol in the field?

If you request more info please let me know.

Thank you in advance for the help.
