How Can I switch string

Hello EE,

Can someone please help me with an excel formula to remove comma and switch the string before the commas to the end of the string? I have the following example:

III, Wallace James
Janet Rhodes,
Adu, Mary Ann

Should be

Wallace James III
Janet Rhodes
Mary Ann Adu

Thanks in advance for your help

Assuming your string is in A1 then try this.....
In B1
=TRIM(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(",",A1))&" "&REPLACE(A1,FIND(",",A1),255,""))

Open in new window


Edit: Or this after including the error handling.
=IFERROR(TRIM(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(",",A1))&" "&REPLACE(A1,FIND(",",A1),255,"")),A1)

Open in new window
