# How to convert string of data into format with quotations?

How would I be able to convert a single string to a string of data? An example would be converting:

data= AMD AAPL FB SNAP MSFT


into the format:

{"AMD","AAPL","FB","SNAP","MSFT"}


Thanks!

data = "AMD AAPL FB SNAP MSFT";

• thanks again eldo! Also realized to add InputForm to add the "" between each string. Thanks a lot :) – jeff Aug 7 '17 at 16:55
