ID and name fields are seperate from each other, but you can adjust columbs anywhere in tabs or dialogs in the program to better suit your needs.

Corey will no doubt be along with a more official response fortwith.

You can do this now by using the Custom format:

{ID} ({FN},{LN})
{ID} ({NN})
{ID} ({LN},{FN})
{ID} ({NN},{FN})


Usually, one configures the name format to the way they prefer then leave it that way.  But you're requesting 4 different formats.  Do you frequently change this preference?  And if so, why?

Thanks for the reply

i requested 4 different formats because I'm not sure about the format i want to use 
when i was posting i wanted to be clear so i posted all 4 instead of one or two to prevent asking for them later if i change my mind
