Parse fullname field

I have a tab delimited file that contains a field that has a fullname. Some of the fullnames have "firstname initial lastname" (ex: Joe B Blow).

I know very little about VB but would like to figure out how to parse the fullname field into a firstname field (firstname initial) and a lastname field. Example:

firstname = Joe B
lastname = Blow

The file contains 10 thousand records so I'm assuming I would perform the script recursively.

Are the columns fixed width?
