if your using vb6 you could use the split function

Dim S As String
Dim SS() As String
S = "Ray  14"
SS = Split(S, " ")
MsgBox SS(0)

I would've used Split, but the asker said he wanted SS="Ray". 6 of one, half a dozen of the other.

Cheers,

RichW

You can still use the split as vinnyd79 has indicated.

Dim S As String
Dim RR As Variant
S = "Ray  14"
RR = Split(S)
SS = RR(0)  ' SS = Ray

Msgbox SS
