How copy everything from the first space

If I have this text in a field:

"1234 West Springfield Avenue"

How can I copy everything from the first space to another field?

In other words, the copied text would be "West Springfield Avenue"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

If you mean in a query then a calculation like below will extract the part you wanted.  Or were you looking for VBA code?

Right(Field1,Len(Field1)-InStr(Field1," "))

VBA Code.  Sorry.  I should have been more clear.

Same code will work in VBA where Field1 and Field2 are variables, like:

Field2 = Right(Field1, Len(Field1) - InStr(Field1, " "))

No Points wanted,
To get just the number you could use:
StreetNumber: Left([CustAddress],InStr([CustAddress]," "))


Not sure what you meant about "Copy"

But using these examples you could build a query like this to display the original field and the two "derived" fields, ...then you could "Use" the derived field anywhere you liked, without having to "copy" anything.
SELECT CustID,CustName, CustAddress, Left([CustAddress],InStr([CustAddress]," ")-1) AS CustStreetNumber, Right([CustAddress],Len([CustAddress])-InStr([CustAddress]," ")) AS CustStreetName
FROM tblCustomers;

derived fields
But again, ...no points wanted as Bill has answered your Q as posted, ...
I was just passing by...
