    I have a text field. It contains names (usually two or three words).

    Is it possible to extract only the first word in a script field in way using regular expressions? (eg ^(\S+) (.*)$ or ^(.+?) (.*)$).

    I imagine you can just use the regular JavaScript regular expression support:

    But I haven’t tested it myself.

    Correct, the standard built in Javascript engine works within the scripts.

    If you check out my repo there is a match example and a replace example (also includes a sample of creating a RegExp object as well if you look up a few lines).
