Default What is the easiest way to split street numbers from a string

I have a list of addresses that I have in a Stringlist, which are in the format

40A Winterbourne Street

Is there an easy way to split the string so that '40A' would go into the street_number string and 'Winterbourne Street' into a street_name string?

also I have addresses that are like : 11 - 15 Winterbourne Street, and would require '11 - 15' in the street_number string

There are several approaches possible, but none of them guarantee 100% coverage.

Default Another way round it

Would it be easier to just remove and words longer that 1 character?

Could anyone point me to any script that may help?

Look up the RXstrUtil Library

That may help, but if there is not defined format there is no guarantee of the results

As long as the formatting stays consistent then you could copy to the position of the first space.

       TestVar : String;
       StreetNumber : String;
       TestVar := '40A No Where St.';
       StreetNumber := Copy(TestVar,0,Pos(' ',TestVar)-1);
This will only work if there is always a space after the street number and never a space in the street number.

Not sure if this helps.
