How to split a FullName field into FirstName and LastName fields
Posted: 12 Feb 03 (Edited 1 Jun 05)

Hello All,
The following formula uses Crystal Syntax.

Situation {Customers.ContactName} = Fred Flintstone

Use this formula
@First Name
Left({Customers.ContactName},Instr({Customers.ContactName},chr(32))-1)
The result will be: Fred


Use this formula
@Last Name
Right({Customers.ContactName},(Length({Customers.ContactName})-(Instr({Customers.ContactName},chr(32)))))

Another version of the @Last Name
Mid({Customer.ContactName},Instr({Customer.Contact Came},Chr(32))+1)

The result will be: Flintstone
