I am going to try to use Right() to find the first space, then to use Instr() to get the family name. And the same way to get first name. Thanks a lot.Best Regards,KevinKevin,
Do you really want to include the titles with the names?
Are there always a first name, space, and last name?
Have you looked into the string functions like Instr(), Left(), Right() , and Mid()?
What have you tried so far?
