Load from Excel - Substring

Hi,

Im loading from an external excel data source :

contact_info:

LOAD [First Name],

     [Surname],

     [Email Address]

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is tdashboard_email_detail);

I need to create a new field during this load resembling : Surname + ' ' + left([First Name],1)  ...

Is this possible at this stage of the load??

Thank you
