I have a string with a long name in it.

Example: Paul De La Cruz

I need to split it into first and last names, where first name is the string up until the first space. Last name will be anything that isn't the first name.

str1= Paul
str2 = De La Cruz

This ended up working, thanks though...

 Dim tmpstr As String = excelvalue
        Dim strlines As String()
        If Len(tmpstr) <> 0 Then
          strlines = tmpstr.Split(" ")
          Dim FirstName As String
          Dim LastName As String = ""

          FirstName = strlines(0)

          For i As Integer = 1 To strlines.Length - 1
            LastName = LastName & strlines(i) & " "
          Next

I don't think that copying and pasting a site that I already looked at as being all that helpful, but if the points are that important to you, here you go..
