The ExtractInitials Function

The ExtractInitials Function

This function takes a string which typically contains a list of names separated by blanks, and extracts the initials from that list.

The following example extracts the initials from a data element containing the full names of a person:

<<ExtractInitials(FirstNames,’.’)>>

The second parameter to the function (in this example a full stop (period)) is the character, or characters, which appears between the letters of the initials.
