Hoe de volledige naam te splitsen in voor- en achternaam in Excel?

Stel dat je een naamlijst hebt zoals de eerste schermafdruk in een enkele kolom hieronder laat zien, en je moet de volledige naam splitsen in de voornaamkolom, middelste naamkolom en achternaamkolom zoals in de volgende schermafbeelding wordt getoond. Hier zijn enkele lastige methoden om u te helpen dit probleem op te lossen:


Splits volledige naam in voor- en achternaam met formules

Volledige namen splitsen in voor- en achternaam:

U kunt de Left-functie, Right-functie en Find-functie gebruiken om een ​​volledige naam aan de voor- en achternaam te spugen met de volgende stappen:

1. Voer de formule in van = LINKS (A2, FIND ("", A2,1) -1) in een lege cel, zegt Cell C2 in dit geval, en sleep vervolgens de vulgreep naar de cellen waarin je deze formule wilt vullen, en alle voornamen zijn in één keer geëxtraheerd, zie screenshot:

doc split volledige namen 2

2. Voer vervolgens de formule in van = RECHTS (A2, LEN (A2) -FIND ("", A2,1)) in een andere lege cel, cel D2, en sleep de vulgreep naar de cellen waarop u deze formule wilt toepassen, en alle achternamen zijn geëxtraheerd in kolom D zoals in de volgende schermafbeelding:

doc split volledige namen 3


Splits volledige namen in voor-, midden- en achternaam:

Als u volledige namen wilt splitsen in voor-, midden- en achternaam in afzonderlijke kolommen, kunnen de volgende formules u een plezier doen.

1. Voer deze formule in: = LINKS (A2, ZOEKEN ("", A2)) in een lege cel C2 en sleep vervolgens de vulgreep naar de cellen om deze formule toe te passen, en alle voornamen zijn opgesplitst in kolom C, zie screenshot:

doc split volledige namen 4

2. Voer vervolgens deze formule in: = MIDDEN (A2, SEARCH ("", A2,1) + 1, SEARCH ("", A2, SEARCH ("", A2,1) +1) -SEARCH ("", A2,1)) in een lege cel D2 en sleep vervolgens de vulgreep naar de cellen om deze formule toe te passen, en alle middelste namen zijn opgesplitst in kolom D, zie screenshot:

doc split volledige namen 5

3. Voer ten slotte deze formule in: = RECHTS (A2, LEN (A2) -SEARCH ("", A2, SEARCH ("", A2, SEARCH ("", A2) +1))) in een lege cel E2 en sleep vervolgens de vulgreep naar de cellen om deze formule toe te passen, en alle voornamen zijn opgesplitst in kolom E, zie screenshot:

doc split volledige namen 6


Splits de volledige naam in voor- en achternaam met de opdracht Tekst naar kolom

Het is niet gemakkelijk om de functie te onthouden. Maak je er alsjeblieft geen zorgen over. De tweede manier zal je helpen om de kolom met de volledige naam gemakkelijk te splitsen.

1. Selecteer de kolom die u wilt splitsen, in dit geval is dit A2: A13.

2. Klik op de Tekst naar kolommen knop onder Data Tab.

doc split volledige namen 7

3. In de Wizard Tekst naar kolommen converteren - Stap 1 van 3 dialoogvenster, controleer de afgebakend optie en klik op volgende knop.

doc split volledige namen 8

4. In de Stap 2 van 3 wizard, controleer alleen de Tussenruimte optie in het delimiters sectie en klik op volgende knop.

doc split volledige namen 9

5. Controleer in de volgende wizard het Tekst optie in het Kolom data formaat sectie, en specificeer het Bestemming cel waar u de resultaten wilt plaatsen. Zie screenshot:

doc split volledige namen 10

6. Klik op de Klaar! knop. Dan zul je zien dat de volledige naamkolom in één keer is gescheiden in de voornaamkolom, middelste naamkolom en achternaamkolom.

    these are great, but!!! after splitting the names i need to remove the column with both names, and that makes the calculation throw an error.

    how can i split (columnB) Bob Smith into (columnC) Bob then (columnD) Smith and then delete columnB, so i'm left with just the FName and LName columns?
    • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
      KB · 4 years ago
      Hi kmrod,

      From my understanding, you put your formulas into columnC and D to get Fname(columnC) and Lname(columnD). Once you do this you try delete columnB and then C and D just say errors?

      If this is the case, sounds like your formulas are still active when you delete columnB. Have you tried copying columnC and columnD then right click over columnC choose -> paste special -> Values -> OK. Then go ahead and delete columnB and that should keep C and D intact.

      Hopefully this fixes your issue.

          Hello, Tanya,


          First, you can apply the Text to Columns > Delimited > other(-) to split the text strings to numbers and names, then use the Find and Replace function to replace the commas to nothing. And you will only get the names with no comma.


          Hope it can help you. Thank you!

          Hi Tanya, are you able to use the above code =RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-SEARCH(" ",A2,SEARCH(" ",A2,SEARCH(" ",A2)+1))) then select the new column with "Doe, John" in it and use a find and replace on the comma, or does it need to be in a formula?
          • To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.
            Tanya · 4 years ago
            Hi KB: This is wonderful, thank you. I definitely wanted it in a formula. Now, when I use this formula, what I get is Doe, John" with a remaining " at the end. I can certainly do another find/replace to remove it along with the comma, but I am wondering if there is a way within the formula to get rid of the remaining "? Thank you so much!!!!!!

              Hi Tanya, sorry I didn't realise the speech marks were also part of the text. In that case perhaps try this code =LEFT(MID(A1, FIND("-", A1) + 2, 255), LEN(MID(A1, FIND("-", A1) + 2, 255)) - 1) then do a find and replace on the comma (Sorry can't think of any way to get rid of this through a formula). Hopefully that should make life easier :)

    To separate name wherein the only delimiter is Uppercase. ex: WilliamSmith (First Name & Last Name) OR WilliamJSmith (First Name, Middle Name(Initial) & Last Name)

    TRY THIS OUT!!!

    For First Name & Last Name --> Assuming A1 contains : WilliamSmith

    Last Name - C1 : =MID(A1,MATCH(1,(CODE(MID(A1,ROW($1:$255),1))>=65)*(CODE(MID(A1,ROW($2:$255),1)) Assuming A1 contains : WilliamJSmith


    Formula extension - E1 : =MID(A1,MATCH(1,(CODE(MID(A1,ROW($1:$255),1))>=65)*(CODE(MID(A1,ROW($2:$255),1))=65)*(CODE(MID(E1,ROW($2:$255),1))

    Hey
    if you want to split First Name Middle name and Last Name
    Use the convert text to column option mentioned in the blog and
    when the popup window shows
    Treat consecutive delimiters as one
    UNTICK the option
    It will split the name in three parts.But all names should have three parts or else the names with only two parts will show last name in middle name column.

      Hi Demi!

      To separate any name with a First Name, Middle Name(Initial), Last Name and Suffix, please use the below formula in the designated cells

      Assuming A1 contains : SANDRA K GREEN MD

      B1 : =LEFT(A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)-1)

      C1 : =MID(A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1,SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1)-SEARCH(" ",A1,1)-1)

      D1 : =MID(A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1)+1,SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1)+1)-SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1)-1)

      E1 : =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,SEARCH(" ",A1,1)+1)+1))

      If you wish to eliminate the suffix you could leave the E1 cell blank.

    A1 is the cell address where your name is located....
    Plz note that dont copy and past the above formula, because while copy and pasting it generates some "space" in-between formulas,,, thus it will throw error... so its better to type the above formula self as-it-is...

      I tried the formula above but my data has everything it has first name Last name, first name middle initial last name and first name with a space "Le Roy". your formula works except for those with a middle initial so the last name is showing up for those as K Smith. is there a simpler formula to drop the K" " and not remove the first letter of the other last names?

      The first name worked great.
      thanks a lot

        Split of First and Last Name Alone Mike Joseph use Left & Find Formula to Extract First name =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1)) To Extract Last Name use Right,len and Find Formula = =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(" ",A1,1))

          This formula worked perfectly for me... Any advice on how to remove comas? ex. St.Louis, I need it to be St. Louis.

          Thank you.

    Thank you thank you! Your tip on splitting names across two columns has just saved me a couple of hours of work on a very busy day. I really appreciate you sharing it. :lol:
