Clean up Author's Names

I have a bunch of books in my Calibre library that have authors with metadata in both

"Last, First"

and

"First Last"

Is there some easy way to get the all in the same format?

Thanks.

The Quality check plug-in can do that.

I open the side panel on the left that shows the number of authors, languages, series, ect. (I don't remember what that panel is specifically called.)

Then "Select All", right click on "Authors" and "Manage Authors" and select "Copy all Author sort values to author".

That makes them all Last, First name.

THanks to both of you. I did DuckyRose as a quick fix and now I am going through the quality check plugin to see what I can clean up.
