I have a spread sheet with FQDN's in one column. What I need to do is separate it so that I only have the short name.

So this is currently in column1
pc.domain.com

I need it to be....
Column1   Column2
PC                 domain.com


Is there a way to automate this to make it easier to do?

If data is in A2 you can use these formulas in B2 and C2 to split

=LEFT(A2,FIND(".",A2)-1)

=REPLACE(A1,1,FIND(".",A2),"")

formulas can be "filled down" the column for multiple rows

You can do Data tab, then Text to column

Or
=LEFT(A2,FIND(".",A2)-1)
and
=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-FIND(".",A2))
