    Question change name arrangement

    Hi guys, i need help in changing name arrangement. Below example is arranged as last name, first name, middle name.

    LEE, CAROL CHEN

    I need to change it to first name and last name format (cancelling the middle name)--- e.g. CAROL LEE

    and what if there are two names?

    LEE, CAROL GRACE CHEN (change to CAROL GRACE LEE)

    Thank you!

    Thumbs up Re: change name arrangement

    Thank you so much NBVC!

    I'll also take this opportunity to ask for the formula which will include the middle name so that arrangement would be firs name, middle, last... just in case i need it in the future

    It would be:

    =TRIM(MID(A1,FIND(",",A1)+1,LEN(A1))&" "&LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1)-1))
