The following SQL Statement is effective in creating three new ID/Name Fields from one original field, and inserting into a new table C.

Unfortunately, it does not code to include all the other original fields from Table A into Table C. Please offer a modification to this code:

select Val([Provider]) as FieldID,Trim(Mid([Provider], InStr([Provider], "-") + 1, InStr([Provider], ",") - 1 - InStr([Provider], "-"))) as FieldLastName,Trim(Mid([Provider], InStr([Provider], ",") + 1, InStrRev([Provider], " ") - 1 - InStr([Provider], ",") + 1)) as FieldFirstName INTO C
From A

Thanks

you will simply need to add the additional fields to your list if you do not use the as option they will use the same field names in the new table is all.

just add an asterisk (*) and a comma ( , )


select *, Val([Provider]) as FieldID,Trim(Mid([Provider], InStr([Provider], "-") + 1, InStr([Provider], ",") - 1 - InStr([Provider], "-"))) as FieldLastName,Trim(Mid([Provider], InStr([Provider], ",") + 1, InStrRev([Provider], " ") - 1 - InStr([Provider], ",") + 1)) as FieldFirstName INTO C
From A
