Hello Everyone,
I was wondering if anyone might know how to return only partial data using Vlookup. I would like to only bring back the first name instead of the full name when doing my vlookup. Thank you for any help anyone can give me. Thank you.

You can use Split

Code:
Sub NameCatcher()


Dim LookInHere As String
Dim Counter As Integer
Dim SplitCatcher As Variant
Dim FirstName As String
 
LookInHere = "FName LName"
 
SplitCatcher = Split(LookInHere, " ")

FirstName = SplitCatcher(Counter)

MsgBox (FirstName)


End Sub
