"set variable with spaces and apostrophe after s"

Hi Guys,
I have a variable such that:
Code:
set x = (Session,Date,Type,Receive Coil Name,Manufacturer,Manufacturer's Model Name)
foreach i ($x)
echo $i
end
I would like to read each variable one by one like:
Session
Date
Type
Receive Coil Name
Manufacturer
Manufacturer's Model Name

Is there an easy way to achieve?
Thanks in advance.

In bourne shell:

Code:
IFS=","
X="Session,Date,Type,Receive Coil Name,Manufacturer,Manufacturer's Model Name"

for VAR in $X
do
       echo $VAR
done
