DB Field format is LName, FName (Single field 'NAME') - need report to read FName, LName - is there a command for that?

I have a report that needs to pull a contact name in the format of FirstName, LastName - the field in the DB is a single field 'NAME' formatted in LastName, FirstName - is there a way to flip the test on each side of the comma and achieve this? All assistance is appreciated.

I assume you want the sql :
declare @str1 varchar(50)
declare @str2 varchar(50)
set @str1 = 'FirstName, LastName'
set @str2 = ''
 
select right (@str1, len(@str1) - charindex(',',@str1)) +', '+LEFT ( @str1 , charindex(',',@str1)-1 ) as NewName
