Contact Name Formatting

How can I change this.  When the dialog box opens it (usually) has the first and last name reversed.  It says to select the proper name from the drop down box, but when I do it doesn't make the change.  Any ideas??

 

Thanks,

Roy - Thanks for the response!!

 

I downloaded the most recent version and it is allowing me to correct the user name in the dialog box.  However, I cannot get it to recognize the professional designation of my database of engineers.  For example

 

David R Coles, P.E.

 

Coles, David, R., P.E. - (dialog box) - Last Name - Coles, First Name - David, Middle Name - R. P.E.

 

Thanks

You need to add the organizations to the Name Suffixes list in Tolls | Preferences.
