Dear people
I import a lot of records from a mysql table which are like:
<font size=1>ANGRY BIRDS  2<br> Thurop Van Orman, John Rice (USA, Finland)<br>5/9/2019 – Spentzos Film</font>
<font size=1> THE FAVORITE<br>Giorgos Lanthimos (USA, UK, Irland )<br>5/9/2019 - Feelgood Ent</font>

What I need is to split it in three different fields (columns)

1. to keep only the Movie Title clearing the first 14 standard characters and everything after the end of the title e.g.
2. to keep only the director’s name (after the first “<br> “ and everything after the first “(“ e.g.
    Thurop Van Orman, John Rice
    Giorgos Lanthimos
3. to keep only the Production Countries (including into parenthesis) clearing all the previous and after that characters

is that possible from msaccess query?

Many thank’s
