Only showing a first word from a company name

Only showing a first word from a company name

Only showing a first word from a company name

Hi everyone, apologies in advance for asking a noob question as I'm still new to Crystals Reports.
But may I know if it's possible to shorten a long company name to show just the first word?
"Sam Sung Private Limited" to show as just "Sam"
"Apple Iphone12 Plus Max" to show as just "Apple"
"Tesla Elon Musk" to show as just "Tesla"

I'm not sure of which formula to use to just get the first word out of this sentences.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

RE: Only showing a first word from a company name

If split({table.company}," ")>0 then
Split({table.company}," ")[1] else
