I know this easy but cant seem to find my notes.  
Need to break address apart  all in one field in access 4310 N 4th ST. , Kansas City.  Just want the address.  I would use the left([Address] but don't don't know what to put to tell it to stop at the comma.

Don't you wish everyone would ask you such easy questions.  Did it years ago and spent all morning tearing up my notes and couldn't find it.  Thank you
