sorry, it wasn't very clear what the original XCMD did, but here's something
that should mimick the same features

function extractItem pFieldName, pItemNumber
  local tempLine, vListToReturn
  set the itemDelimiter to TAB
  repeat for each line tempLine of fld pFieldName
    put item pItemNumber & LINEFEED of tempLine after vListToReturn
  end repeat
  return vListToReturn
end extractItem
