I have column of address in the format:

Street Address, City, State such as:

10675 Scripps Poway Pkwy, San Diego, CA

In Column C I need just the street address (everything before the first comma)

I'll post different questions for column City.

In your query you can use:

SELECT
  Mid([YourField],1,InStr([YourField],",")-1) AS Address,
  Mid(Mid([YourField],InStr([YourField],",")+1),1,InStr(Mid([YourField],InStr([YourField],",")+1),",")-1) AS City
FROM YourTable;
