Separate First Name, Last Name and Middle Initial

Code will take the user name and separate the First Name, Last Name and Middle Initial to be used for searching the Address book or other views.

user_name = Evaluate("@Name([CN];@UserName)")
len_all_name = Len(user_name(0))
pos_first_name = Instr(user_name(0)," ")
first_name = Left(user_name(0),pos_first_name - 1)
last_name = Right(user_name(0),len_all_name - pos_first_name)
pos_middle = Instr(last_name," ")
If pos_middle <> 0 Then
mid_name = Left(last_name,pos_middle -1)
first_name = first_name & " " & mid_name
pos_all_last = Len(last_name)
last_name = Right(last_name,pos_all_last - pos_middle)
End If
