Get last name from string

If I have a gallery item string with the name ALEX BLAINE WARREN, why would Last(Split(ThisItem.Name," ")).Result  return nothing?  First name split does work (selecting first(split(Thisitem.Name," ")).Result.  

 

Thanks for the information

Try adding a Trim() around the Thisitem.Name inside the Split.  You may have a trailing space.

@Pstork1 Thank you!  I don't know why I didn't think about trailing spaces.  that was the issue.
