    I'm using Access 2000 to manage a database.

    My objective is simply :-
    To convert one text format into another - where the program will simply select the first word
    and last word in a name field and insert it into a salutation field on data entry.

    Example:
    aa bb ccccc - becomes aa ccccc
    Mr J Doe - becomes Mr Doe

    I'm a novice at writing code or using the built-in expressions etc in Access to write a coherent code/expression which works. Can anyone help - perhaps write a code which achieves this?
    Thanks

    Look up the MID function, I think it will do what you are looking for. Seems your tables are not written very well though. It's usually a good idea to seperate out first and last names into seperate fields in your table for the very reason you are looking at. It also makes indexing and searching records a lot smoother as well.
