    parsing field (v2000)

    I receive a spreadsheet weekly that contains both the last name and first initial in the same field. The last name is followed by a space then the first initial (jones c). I want to have the last name in one field and the first initial in a separate field. How would I go about that? Thanks in advance.

    If there are no double last names, the following is very quick:
    - Make sure that there is a blank column to the right of the column with names.
    - Select the column with names.
    - Select Data | Text To Columns.
    - Select Delimited, then click Next.
    - Select the Space as delimiter.
    - Click Finish.
