    Default How to manipulate a value

    Hi all,
    I'm doing some phone system programming and have a variable that I need to edit. The variable value is a name formatted as "last,first". I want to edit this so that the value becomes "first last". This might be very easy to do, but I know very little about Java programming so please be gentle.

    Hi, have a look at the String API doc. split(...) is the one you want to separate first and last.
