Hi

I have various cells with the names back to front set like this:

Smith, Frank
Jones, Harry

but i want them to be like this

Frank Smith
Harry Jones

With no commas, 3000 odd names with some ok and some not but from the look of it all the ones with commas with the second name before them

If I read you right, this may work:
Book2
ABCD
1Smith,FrankFrankSmith
2Jones,HarryHarryJones
3ChrisSmithChrisSmith
4BobJonesBobJones
Sheet1


Hope that helps,

Smitty

EDIT: That didn't come out too well; formula is-->

=IF(ISERROR(FIND(",",A1)),A1,RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(",",A1)-1)&LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1)-1))
