Find the first name in a string:

   =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)-1)

Find the last name in a string containing only two names:

   =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,999)

If you have that data in A1 then you can get the first word in B1 with this formula

=LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)-1)

and in C1

=REPLACE(A1,1,FIND(" ",A1),"")

To extract the "happy" part:

=left(B6;find(" ";B6))    // assuming B6 contains "happy exchange"

to extract the "exchange" part:

=right(B6;lenght(B6) - lenght(C6))   // in B6 we had "happy exchange", in C6, the first formula
