    First name, Last name in seperate columns

    Hello,
    I have a very large spreadsheet with customer information...Company, Name, Address, City, etc etc...The problem is that Name is first name and last name in one column...I would like to have first name in one column and last name in another. Is there any way to do this without copying and pasting 25,000 names?
    Any help would save me days of work
    Thanks
    John

    Insert a column at B.
    Select column A.
    Data>Text To Columns and use a delimiter of space.
