Hello,

can you post 3 examples of renaming from /to please?
Probably you will be able to do it with just Regular Expressions in BRU

thanks

Example:

From:
Jon Snow
Dwight Howard
Michael Scott

Into:
Snow Jon
Howard Dwight
Scott Michael

I tried using Move/Copy but when I switched to the next name it does not do the same from previous.
Please help...
Thank you.

Always two words, separated by a space?

If so, you could try:

1:RegEx
Code: Select all
Match:  (.*) (.*)
Replace:  \2 \1



Note that it might not be correct with "xs snizer jr." or "the rube sr."
(It would give, "jr. | xs snizer" & "sr. | the rube".)
