Can you please help me with  String function
I have a list of patients and unfortunately some pts have their names
recorded  in various formats like  James Edward ; James Edward H;
James Edward J   etc
Is it possible to write a code where the funcition  removes the last
alphabet for the string if it is listed separately like

 James Edward H--> James Edward

Thank you ,
Yours Sincerely,
