Return nth Word in String of Text

The following function will find the nth word in a string:

It needs two arguments – the phrase that is to be searched and the word number:

Find_nth_word(“Automateexcel ls the worlds favourite Excel site”,4)

Will return “world”.

A blank is returned if the number of words in the phrase is less than the word number specified.

So: Find_nth_word(“Automateexcel ls the worlds favourite Excel site”,12)
Will return blank as there are not 12 words in the phrase “Automateexcel ls the worlds favourite Excel site”.
