Formula to get value in a table

Question

Hello, I have a value in a table, let's just say it's a first name and last name in a single field. I want to be able to get the first name using formula field. Is this possible? Example, I have "Walt Disney". I want to be able to get the value 'Walt' as it is the first name. Thanks to whoever will answer. :)

I would like to add this to those who also like to get the first 10 fields of their characters in the formula field:

LEFT([@field:Name] , 10)

and in Calculated fields:

SELECT LEFT([@field:Name] , 10) from tableName where condition

Hope this helps.

oops, does this also applies to the last 10 fields? I'll just make the LEFT to RIGHT?

Yes, the RIGHT function allows you to extract a sub string from a string, starting from the right-most character.

Formula should be somewhat like this: RIGHT([@field:Name] , 10)

and in Calculated fields:

SELECT RIGHT([@field:Name] , 10) from tableName where condition
