Question ID: 771401
I would like to take a merge field from an excel spreadsheet in MS Word; <First_Name> <Last_Name>; and reduce it to the initial only then last name in lower case. I can reduce to lowercase but not to the first initial. My Example would be: John Doe becomes jdoe. This would be for use as a username. I would like to do this in MS Word.

since the list of names is already in excel, why not do the truncating and concatenating in excel, then transfer to word? -cab
