Renaming folders for names

hi.
I know this might sound like a lame question but.....

I would like to rename many folders from .... "Surname, Firstname" to "Firstname Surname"....

for example  "King, Steven" to "Steven King" also to remove the comma ......

but i don't want to rename the contents of the folder, just the folder itself....

I know I can remove the comma afterwards with a seperate rule.

Is this possible and how do I do it..... lol

Thanks In advance

Re: Renaming folders for names

One man once said... There is no such thing as a lame question, only lame answers. Now, let's rename some folders.

Configure your filter settings for renaming folders, and add all your folders that you wish to rename.

Add a Rearrange rule: Split using an exact pattern of delimiters ", " with a new pattern "$2 $1".

Check the results and rename.

Thank very much...
It worked like a dream....

It swapped the surname/firstname and removed the comma at the same time....

Brilliant, Again Thanks very much!
