Breaking Down a field
Date: Mon, 30 Aug 2004 12:17:42 GMT
I have a field that is populated as follows
Gillard, Robert J : Retail
The surname always has a comma after it and whilst there is not always an
initial after the 1st name there is always a space and a colon after it. I
need to be able to extract both the surname and 1st name to use in an
unbound text box.
Is it possible to extract this information from the above field, if so ,
