With your data in column A, put this in column B and copy down
=LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)-1)
and this in column C and copy down
=MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)+1,99)

Use the following formula to obtain the portion to the left of the space

=LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1))

and for the right

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(" ",A1))

If your data are in column A, starting from A1, enter this in B1:

=LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)-1)

and this in C1:

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-LEN(B1)-1)

select B1:C1 and copy down.

Sounds like homework to me.

Will your teacher mark you down since none of the suggestions here used
"substitute"?
