From the User guide.

Reformats a tag value from

lastname, firstname

to

firstname lastname

For example, you can use the option Composer.reverseName.display to display the tag value

Bach, Johann Sebastian

to

Johann Sebastian Bach


It will not change

firstname lastname

to

lastname, firstname
You can accomplish this semi-automatic with MP3Tag.

I attached a file. Put this in the data\actions folder of MP3Tag and change the Extension from TXT to MTA. Then you will find a new action in the Menu "Actions". This action copies "John Smith" from ARTIST to "Smith, John" in ALBUMARTIST. This is used by MinimServer for sorting.
