Hi I have a column in Microsoft SQL 2008 that it data is delimited by a "."   every column has it and only one delimiter

so I have  something like this

RecordID ,  TableFieldName
-------------   -----------------------------------
1                 Profile.Firstname
2                 Profile.LastName
3                 Contact.PhoneNumber

I would want to have output like this

Record    Table            Field
----------    -------------    ----------------------
1              Profile          FirstName
2              Profile          LastName
