have a string that contains a full name... for example "john m doe".

need to put "doe" in a string called strLastName and "john m" in string called strFirstName. if the name was "john doe" (without the middle initial), then strLastName would be "doe", and strFirstName would be "john"

if there is a mr/ms/mrs/dr etc. in front of first name, then it should be placed in strFirstName...

please advise on the correct code... thanks!

FirstSpace=FullName.IndexOf(" ");
LastSpace=FullName.LastIndexOf(" ");

FirstWord=FullName.Substring(0,FirstSpace);
LastWord=FullName.Substring(LastSpace+1);
Middle=FullName.SubString(FirstSpace+1,LastSpace-FirstSpace);

I leave it to you to check for:
* honorific or not
* no spaces
* just 1 space
