Lastname, Firstname M.

It's copied into the clipboard as with this heading (Lastname, Firstname M.) but later in the macro I need it to be rearranged and spit out as Firstname M. Lastname.

 

Seems as though it wouldn't be all that difficult but, well, I don't have a clue how. I've had help in the past with other text related questions and have been able to modify the answers and use them but I really still don't understand this part of processing text.

 

Thanks.

Seems quite straighforward. You could use the Get Position of Text in a Text Variable command (under Set Integer Variable) to find the comma.

 

After that you can use Modify String Variable->Copy Part Of Text to extract the names, by refering to the comma position.
