How would I remove everything after *? Using this works but also gets rid of the ones that only have 1 name.
LEFT(
{Name},
FIND(
" * ",
{Name}
)-1
)

If anyone is interested I figured it out
IF(FIND(" “,{Name}&’’),TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(LEFT({Name}&’’,SEARCH(”",{Name}&’’)-1))),{Name})

This keeps the single names but gives an error for the ones that I want to shorten
IF(FIND(" *",{Name}&’’),TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(LEFT({Name}&’’,SEARCH(" *",{Name}&’’))," *" *"")),{Name})
