Use PATINDEX and SUBSTRING:

DECLARE @Sample TABLE
    (
      AlphaNumeric NVARCHAR(255)
    );

INSERT  INTO @Sample
VALUES  ( N'VFPNO00007654' ),
        ( N'VSDN00002345' );

SELECT  S.AlphaNumeric ,
        PATINDEX('%[0-9]%', S.AlphaNumeric) ,
        SUBSTRING(S.AlphaNumeric, 1, PATINDEX('%[0-9]%', S.AlphaNumeric)) ,
        SUBSTRING(S.AlphaNumeric, PATINDEX('%[0-9]%', S.AlphaNumeric), 1024)
FROM    @Sample S;

Are those variables or table columns?
Do you want to split them in 2 variables/columns or add a single space between them?
The rule is to split at the first zero or any number?
