There a several different text manipulation components that can be used to both extract and combine text data. A combination of the Extract Text from Text component & Text Merge components should be sufficient.

All these comps can be found under Text Handling in the component tree

1. Extract Text From Text comp to get J from JSmith

2. Merge Text comp to combine "J" with "Smith"

3. Convert String To Lower Case comp to make "jsmith"
