You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the database in the above folder.

Using the hint below create a query to extract the last word in the album title, in the hope that it will give the artist name:

This query only works for artists with a single word in their name!

The InStrRev function picks out the last occurrence of a string of text within another string, starting at the end. 

Save your query as SplittingAlbumTitle, then close it and your database down.
