Hi Experts,

I have a table that contains Full_Name column and would like to split it into two columns, first and last name.
Tried exporting to Excel and do Text to columns, but there are cases with 3 names, which I would like to have the first two in First_Name column and the thirt in Last_Name colum.
What is the easiest way to accomplish it?
