    Does any one know of a method or program to enable a mass way to split the field 'invoice_name' into two so you end up with say firstname and lastname. Then if you have say two Smiths, one John and the other Jack you can find them under Smith, John and Smith, Jack not John Smith and Jack Smith.
    Thanks.

    Hi Pat,

    Excel has a function to do this.

    In Excel 2007 its under the 'Data tab' - and is called the 'text to columns' function.

    Hope this helps
