I am using Crystal Reports XI R2

I have a field with the following sort of data in it.

Wills for John Smith
Will for John Bloggs
LPA for Esther & John Smith

I am looking to extract the names from the field only

At the moment I am doing

if field startswith 'Will for' then replace(field,'Will for ','') else
if field startswith 'Wills for' then replace(field,'Wills for ','') else etc

Is there an easier or more succinct way of doing this
