    Post Extract and Copy Part of Text String From one cell to another

    Hi,
    I have to sort list of thousands name (3000 names) and remove duplicates. My problem is majority of the names have their title (i.e) Prof. Dr. Ir. Sir. etc typed in, so I need to copy the title in different cell and have their name only. Here's what I expect:

    Current List ----> Column A -->Column B
    Drs. H. A. Andrew Boston, MRE. ----> Drs. H. --> Andrew Boston, MRE
    Drs. H. Andrew Smith ----> Drs. H. --> Andrew Smith
    H. Abd. Mohammed Junus ----> H. --> Abd. Mohammed Junus
    Prof. DR. Jane Doe, MD ----> Prof. D --> Jane Doe, MD
    Prof. DR. Ir. H. Randy Wong, MBA --->Prof. DR. Ir. H. -> Randy Wong, MBA
    Dra. H. A. Karen Patel ----> Dra. H. --> Karen Patel
    Drs. H. A. M. Kangkong ----> Drs. H. A. --> M. Kangkong
    Prof. Drs. H. A. Kareem Saleh, Ph.D -> Prof. Drs. H. A. ->Kareem Saleh, Ph.D
    Dra. Hj. Nina Schorder ----> Dra. Hj. --> Nina Schorder
    Ir. Abdul Jabbar ----> Ir. --> Abdul Jabbar

    use text ot columns and use a , (comma) as seperator.
    Notice my main language is not English.

    I appreciate it, if you reply on my solution.
