    Name Split receiving #VALUE! error

    I have a column of names to split but I can't use "text to columns" because of credentials, etc. I've tried the following formula and it works where I have a first and last name available, but how do I get the first name to show if there is no last name, and leave the last name cell blank? Please see attached.

    Try this:

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

    and

    =RIGHT(A1,MAX(0,LEN(A1)-FIND(" ",A1&" "))) or =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1&" "),100)
