hello yall ,
This is really easy.
I have a string that looks like this "ABCDEFG.., ZYPYOYO"
Basically "LastNames" "Comma" "FirstNames" and I would like to seperate the two.
Please provide me with a Function in Visual Basic that can do that.
Thanks in Advance

There are many ways to do this.  Here is one:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim name As String
    Dim LastName As String
    Dim FirstName As String

    name = "ABCDEFG.., ZYPYOYO"
    LastName = Trim(Left(name, InStr(name, ",") - 1))
    FirstName = Trim(Mid(name, InStr(name, ",") + 1))
   
    Debug.Print name
    Debug.Print LastName
    Debug.Print FirstName
End Sub
