Is there a formula I can copy into say, cell B1, that will change a
name in cell A1 from "Brown, John" to John Brown?

Thanks to all you excel wizards out there!

I'm 10 years late to this thread, but your formula works a treat!

What if you want John Doe to become Doe John with no commas and only
space in between?

Remove the comma from Claus' formula:

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

Help will always be given to those who ask for it.
