Can you AutoAverage in Excel?
There is a drop-down next to the AutoSum symbol. Open the drop-down to choose AVERAGE, COUNT, MAX, or MIN

Hi,

One way :-

First Name =LEFT(A1,FIND(".",A1)-1)
Las Name =MID(A1,FIND(".",A1)+1,FIND("@",A1)-FIND(".",A1)-1)

nt_beans,

Here is a macro solution for you to consider that uses two arrays in memory.

The original raw data in range A1:C4, will be replaced with the results in range A1:E4.

Please TEST this FIRST in a COPY of your workbook (always make a backup copy before trying new code, you never know what you might lose).

1. Copy the below code
2. Open your NEW workbook
3. Press the keys ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor
4. Press the keys ALT + I to activate the Insert menu
5. Press M to insert a Standard Module
6. Where the cursor is flashing, paste the code
7. Press the keys ALT + Q to exit the Editor, and return to Excel
8. To run the macro from Excel press ALT + F8 to display the Run Macro Dialog. Double Click the macro's name to Run it.

Code:
Sub ReorganizeData()
' hiker95, 12/11/2017, ME1034899
Dim a As Variant, r As Long, c As Long
Dim o As Variant, j As Long
Dim s1, i As Long, s2, ii As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
a = Cells(1, 1).CurrentRegion
ReDim o(1 To UBound(a, 1), 1 To 5)
j = j + 1: o(j, 1) = a(1, 1): o(j, 2) = "First Name": o(j, 3) = "Last Name"
o(j, 4) = a(1, 2): o(j, 5) = a(1, 3)
For r = 2 To UBound(a, 1)
  For c = 1 To UBound(a, 2)
    If c = 1 Then
      j = j + 1: o(j, 1) = a(r, c)
      s1 = Split(a(r, c), "@")
      s2 = Split(s1(0), ".")
      o(j, 2) = WorksheetFunction.Proper(s2(0))
      o(j, 3) = WorksheetFunction.Proper(s2(1))
    ElseIf c = 2 Then
      o(j, 4) = a(r, c)
    ElseIf c = 3 Then
      o(j, 5) = a(r, c)
    End If
  Next c
Next r
Cells(1, 1).CurrentRegion.ClearContents
Cells(1, 1).Resize(UBound(o, 1), UBound(o, 2)) = o
Columns.AutoFit
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Before you use the macro with Excel 2007 or newer, save your workbook, Save As, a macro enabled workbook with the file extension .xlsm, and, answer the "do you want to enable macros" question as "yes" or "OK" (depending on the button label for your version of Excel) the next time you open your workbook.

Then run the ReorganizeData macro.

Formula method seems so much simpler than a macro...

Original email address in A2
B2: =LEFT(A2,FIND(".",A2)-1)
C2: =REPLACE(LEFT(A2,FIND("@",A2)-1),1,LEN(B2)+1,"")
