I know at one time there were several threads that spoke to extracting the First Name from a full name, and also a formula for extracting the Last Name. While I can find several threads with the code for First Name, I cannot find any that show for Last Name now that I'm in need of it 😂
I've tried different variations using RIGHT instead of left, but I either get really odd returns where some last names are extracted properly, and others are completely way off, or I get blank returns.
I have several Full Names that include more than 1 name as that Last Name. Example: Olivia Gutierrez Lawson. I would need "Gutierrez Lawson" to appear in the last name field with the formula.
I feel confident in some of my formula creation skills and then there are times like this when I realize just how little I know haha. I am so grateful there is a community of people who are way better at understanding formulas than I am that I can ask for help from.
One of the issues you'll run into with extraction is that there is no way to differentiate whether a space is in the first name ("Mary Ann") or the last name ("Gutierrez Lawson"). Is it possible to use separate fields for first and last names and then concatenate them when you need the full name?
