First Name/Last Name ordering in Contacts list

Like many people in this forum, I had difficulty transferring my Contacts list from my old Palm Treo 700p to my new Tour. The Device Switch Wizard in both versions 4.7 and 5.0 of BB Desktop Wizard didn't work for me - all options were always grayed out - so I gave up, transferred my contacts from Palm Desktop to a .csv file and then imported that .csv file to Outlook, finally synchronizing Outlook with my Tour.


That worked - kinda.


Now many of my contacts are properly listed as "Last Name, First Name" but many are listed as "First Name, Last Name." I could laboriously fix the problem by editing each contact, but the odd thing is that when I go to try to edit the Contact files that are in the wrong order (First Name, Last Name), the edit "page" shows them to be mapped properly, with the Last Name in the Last Name slot and the First Name in the First Name slot.


Can this be mess be fixed?
