Swiching authors first and last names for multiple entries?

I was to trying to rearrange the author's last name for the first for many, multiple entries (over 2000). Has anyone done this in Calibre? It's the one thing I haven't figured out--any help is greatly appreciated!

If you're wanting the order to be LastName, FirstName, then make sure the Tag Browser is open.

Then 'Select All', hover over 'Authors' in the Tag Browser.
Chose 'Manage Authors'.
Then select 'Copy all author sort values to author'.

That does it for me.
