Default how can I split one cell's data into two cells?

I am using Excel as a database, and have a column with cells with a person's
name (text) in it...e.g., John Smith. NOW, after the fact, I wish to have a
column with just John in it, and another column with just Smith...but I have
NO idea how to do this! Help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Please refrain from multi posting, you have answers in one of the 4!
newsgroups you posted the same question in. Multiposting is frowned upon and
even the MS web interface states so
