Jim,
itemToParse must be a new gadget added after 4.0. I don't see it in my dictionary. How does it know when to go back to the old itemDelimiter? Or do you need a second line downstream?

Learning from you guys all the time,
Mike

If you are concered about the current itemDel setting 
then you could add one line (instead of 3) before the path operation

replace "/" with the itemDel in itemsToParse
