What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Select the cells, then use Data>Text to Columns and specify the comma as the delimiter.

Try:
Code:
Sub m()
strg = Split([A1], ",")
For i = LBound(strg) To UBound(strg)
Cells(2, i) = strg(i)
Next
End Sub
