@Name([CN]; ??) QUestions

I have a field called PMMAsst.  It is a name / editable with Multiple Values Allowed.  They can use the address book to enter the names.  The problem is sometimes the name comes in Full Ex:

Bobby Socks/Something/Something

and Sometimes it comes it Ex:

Bobby Socks

So in my view, it does not see them as the same person.  What can I do to get the names to always show up

Bobby Socks in the view.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
