how to split text in access into 2 fields

Hi,
I have a field like the following:
4mg/Acc
3mgkl/Mllpr
LLMN/Gkoh

So all what i want to do is that split the text into 2 fields starting the "/".  Here is the result that i would like to see:
field1               field2
4mg                 Acc
3mgkl               Mllpr
LLMN              Gkoh

Thanks.
