Can anyone provide a method to batch change all my existing contacts (687) in

Outlook 2007. I would like to change the "File as" field from "First Last" to

"Last, First".

I can change each individua entry manually in the "File as" field in the

address card view, but that is pretty labourius.

I tried to export all into a CSV file and then manually manipulate the "File

as" field in Excel, but the field is not exported, so that didn't help.
