How to display a Name entered in a single field in two fields on form

How to display a Name entered in a single field in two fields on form

How to display a Name entered in a single field in two fields on form

(OP)
Hi there.


I have a table where name is entered in a single field using  Last Name,First Name format. I would like to have a display on a form as a Last_Name First_Name in two separate fields in order to compare it with recordset of similar nature. Thnks in advance

RE: How to display a Name entered in a single field in two fields on form

This will probably cause more trouble than you really want to deal w/, because if you don't get the data entry to be "right", there will be to many variations/exceptions to the actual format that you will never get all of them corrected.  

BUT ... done in Debug/immediate window should get you started down the proverbial "Yellow Brick World".  Just apply the functions to the text boxes, referencing the field name.

FullName = "Red, Michael"
NameL = Trim(LEft(FullName, Instr(FullName, ",") -1))
? NameL
Red
NameF = Trim(Right(FullName, Len(FullName) - Instr(FullName, ",")))
? NameF
Michael

There is never time to do it right but there is always time to do it over
