How to view contacts by Last Name first, then First Name?

How do I change the view of my contacts from First Name Last Name to Last Name, First Name?   I have a couple thousand of them, so I am looking for something to do all of them at once.

 

Right now I see all my contacts like this... (Monica Harmon).  I would like to view them like this... (Harmon, Monica).  Granted, they are SORTED by their last name, but I want to view them that way as well.

 

NOTE:  These are NOT imported contacts - they are contacts that I have hand entered into ACT myself.  (I currently use Version 11, 2009).


Thanks,

Monica

Only really if you enter them as "Harmon, Monica" ... the comma will know to reverse the order when assigning the first/last names

Of course, you could add the First Name and Last Name fields to the Layout or the Contact List views ... you can't edit them, but they can display
