I have a column that contains first and last name. Is there a way to switch it to last name then first? Someone sent one of our users a file and she needs it by last name.

Jane,
Can you post an example of what you have? and what you want to have? Does the name have a comma seperator, a space? If it's a space are there names that are 3 names?

Are all the entries first name followed by a single space followed by surname, or do you have entries with middle initials etc. ??
