This one-step add-on will divide the selected full names in your sheet into different columns with the name parts you choose to see.
Select the column with multipart names you want to split and open the tool in Extensions > Split Names > Start:
You will see the add-on window with a couple of settings:
Once you have the range and columns set, click on the Split button to get the selected name parts in a new column to the right of the original one:
Can I use this to split 2 names in the same column? Example: Delvy Doe & Martine Doe
Thank you for your question. If you have Delvy Doe & Martine Doe in one cell and want to split the data so that Delvy Doe will be in one column and Martine Doe will be in another one, you'd better use the Split by Characters tool and use the & sign as a separator. Hope this will work for you. In case you have any questions or need further assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hi! I renewed my license a few months ago but it is prompting me to renew again. Can someone help me with this?
I've just replied to you via email. If you have any other questions or need further assistance, do not hesitate to email back.
I could not get this to work... it said it had no access and I specifically did give it access. I hesitate to buy the paid version if I can't even try it out! Guess I have to use an old excel version to accomplish what I'm trying to do
Thank you for contacting us. I kindly ask you to send us a screenshot of the error message you get to email@example.com. We will do our best to make our software work for you.
How can I go about split the name like 'Barns, C.J.'
I would just need C.J. to get put into the first name column so the name would read C.J. Barns.
This doesn't work with this add on. Apparently initials like this is ignored.
Thank you for your question.
Our Split Names treats C.J. as a suffix since it also stands for chief justice. I'm afraid it's technically impossible to recognize when this contraction is a first name and when it's a post-nominal. So currently it is set to be recognized as the latter one.
We'll definitely update the add-on if we find a better solution.
Please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience.
I am getting a message to purchase but I already renewed my license on Jan 10.
