querying

Hi everyone.



I would like to know how I can extract information from one field in
access. I have a field called FullName with the following format:



Smith, Mr. John



I'd like to be able to extract the following from the field:



LastName

FirstName

Title



It should look like the following:



LastName = Smith

FirstName = John

Title = Mr.



Now if there's no title, it's ok it'll just be blank.



I was able to use the following query to extract the lastname:

LastName: Left([Name],InStr([Name],",")-1)



but I'm not sure how to go about the FirstName and Title.



Thanks for any advice!!

Thanks Vanderghast!



Do you know by any chance how to run a delete query? After I did that
and trimmed the database, i got about 594 identical names and I want to
delete the identical ones. I don't know if I run a delete query it
might delete all 594 which I don't want. I'm assuming half of the 594
is what I need.



Thanks in advance!
