Assuming your table is called Customer and the field is named Name then the following gives you a few alternatives

SELECT customer.NAME, Left([name],InStr([name],"/")-1) AS LeftSide, Right([name],Len([name])-InStr([name],"/")) AS RightSide, Left([name],InStr([name],"/")) AS [LeftSideWith/], Right([name],Len([name])-InStr([name],"/")+1) AS [RightSideWith/]
FROM customer;

How about this:

SELECT CustomerT.CustomerID, IIf(InStr(1,[CustomerName],"/")>0,Left([CustomerName],InStr(1,[CustomerName],"/")-1),[CustomerName]) AS Expr1, CustomerT.CustomerName
FROM CustomerT;
