Hello Experts.

I have a Crystal Report that has a field with a persons entire name.  Some people have "firstName middleInitial lastName", "firstName lastName", "firstName1 firstName2 middleName1 middleName2 lastName".

The entries all vary in length, but all I need is the last name.  The last name is always preceded by a space.  How do I split the entry and capture just that part of the string following the last space?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
