    Manipulate Text Function (Access97)

    Does there exist a function that will take a Name field (text) and allow me to parse out the first characters until it encounters a space or a comma? Or is there a modification of the left, right, or mid functions that can accomplish this?

    Specifically I have a LName field that in some cases has a Suffix, sometimes it is Loween, Jr. other times it is Loween III, either way, I only want the Loween.

    As always... Thanks a bunch. Jenn. Happy Treating
