In below code semicolon separation not working for string with email addresses. Can someone help please?

Apex code

List<ABV_Form_Request_abv__c>  Useremails= ABV_Form_Request_abv__c.getAll().values();
           for(ABV_Form_Request_abv__c Useremail : Useremails)
                   for(String estr : Useremail.Email_abv__c.split(';')){

    Can you add some input/output combos? Seems fine at first glance. – Adrian Larson Feb 24 '16 at 16:14
  • Put System.debug('Useremail.Email_abv__c ' + Useremail.Email_abv__c) before, after, and in your Ifs – EricSSH Feb 24 '16 at 16:21
  • Its a standard practice to separate emails with comma stackoverflow.com/a/12120203/1343065, are you sure its semicolon and not comma ? – karthikselva Feb 24 '16 at 16:24
  • If not careful, by using semicolons, you could easily be creating lists of strings instead of a single string of email addresses, esp if using brackets [] followed by {} curly braces notation (in source code for emails that is). – crmprogdev Feb 24 '16 at 18:15
  • Can you maybe post an example string you are trying to split? – cricketlang Feb 24 '16 at 18:49

Definitely is not an issue with splitting the string, simplified the code a bit and ran the following in the execute anonymous window to demonstrate:

List<String>  Useremails = new List<String>{
    'fifth@sixth.com', 'six@seven.com'};
List<String> emailResults = new List<String>();

for(String Useremail : Useremails) {
    for(String email : Useremail.split(';')){


debug results
