I have done some research understand the logic but need help putting it together.

I am assuming this will be a left and right split
Buyer_Name = Jose Castro & Joana Castro
So for buyer it would be a left split till "&" sign for Buyer_1 and for Buyer_2 it would be a left split till the "&" sign. How can I set this up.

Let me know if this needs further explanation...
<script>
function split_names(id){
	var el = document.getElementById(id);
	var out = document.getElementById('output');
	var string = el.value;
	var done = string.split("&");
	var out_str = "We split this into the following: <br/>";
 
	for (i=0; i<done.length; i++){
		out_str += (i+1) + " : " + done[i] + "<br />";
	}
	out.innerHTML = out_str;
}
</script>
<div style="width:100%;" align="center"><input id="for_testing" /><input type="button" value="Split!" onclick="split_names('for_testing');" /></div>
<div style="width:100%;" align="center" id="output"></div>

Where is your code?  Show us how you are using what the expert provided.  In the example the expert gave you the function is called by pressing the Split! button.  You could use an onblur event in the input box for Buyer Name but will the user input that info and what is the html for the inputs?  If you need specifics please show us the html and how you have the script above in your code.  I will be glad to show you how to use it.
bol
p.s.  Please use Javascript or maybe JS instead of Java.  Java is a completely different language and not used in browsers for clientside scripting.  Using that name will just cause confusion.
