I have 2 text boxs.  1 is called firstname, the other surname.

I have another field that is a display name call webdisplayname

I want the name to display the first letter of the firstname a full stop, a space and the surname.

eg: John Smith would J. Smith

i have got the code to make John Smith out of John and Smith, but how do i pick the first letter of the name only.

My code is:

webdisplayname = firstname & ". " & surname
