Break up a field
I have a field in a Database with the title of Name: It is varchar(27). Text
is input as follows: DOE JOHN MICHAEL
I want to be able to break up the NAME block into 3 different blocks for
a query. LNAME, FNAME, MNAME.
I can do it in access using:
FNAME: IIf(InStr(Mid([NAME_IND],InStr([NAME]," ")+1)," "),Left(Mid([NAME],InStr([NAME],"
")+1),InStr(Mid([NAME],InStr([NAME]," ")+1)," ")),Mid([NAME],InStr([NAME],"
. . . for the FNAME.
I have the code for the LNAME and MNAME also.
Another problem is that I can't use CASE on the query, becuase I am trying
to create a view and CASE is not supported with view (I don't think).
Any help is greatly appreciated.
