how to deconstruct a field with multiple values

Hello, i am just starting with qlikview. I think the solution is excellent. I have a question that has to to with preparing data:

In a customers database there is a field called serviceday indicating on which day a customer is helped e.g.:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 

this means that the customer uses the service on all days of the week.

Another example:

1 3 5

this means that the customer uses the service on monday, wednesday, friday.

question:

1. how do i count the days for each field so that qlikview understand there are 7 days in the first example, and 3 days in the second example?

2. where could i find more info / manuals about these kind of data conversion in qlikview? because i'm expecting a lot in the coming project.

thanks for your response,

hope to find a solution,

Manolito
