Hello Experts
I am trying to split the customer name into 3 parts to capture title,first and last name separately..

.Name = Node.SelectNodes("DELIVERTO/NAME").Item(0).InnerText

ex: "MRS HELLEN MICHAEL MURRAY"

I want to store the first 2 parts in 2 variables and the rest of the name in 3rd variable

Title = "MRS"
Fname="HELLEN"
Lname= "MICHAEL MURRAY"  


Please can someone advise?

Thanks

Dim str As String()
Dim sName, Title, Fname, Lname As String
sName = .Name
str = sName.Split(" ")
Title = str(0)
Fname = str(1)
Lname = ""
For a = 2 To str.Length - 1
    Lname = Lname & " "
Next
Lname = Left(Lname, Len(Lname) - 1)

This should work, off the top of my head.

Probably simpler:
Dim str As String()
Dim sName, Title, Fname, Lname As String
sName = .Name
str = sName.Split(" ")
Title = str(0)
Fname = str(1)
Lname = Replace(sName, Title & " " & Fname & " ", "")
