Reverse the Order of Imported Display Names

In many languages, particularly those of the Indo-European family, a person's name is the first name followed by the last name. For other languages, such as traditional Chinese, the family name precedes the given name. The Notes connector enables you to import users' display names according to the naming conventions used in the native language.

To reverse the order of imported display names:

  1. In Microsoft Notepad, open the Exchsrvr\Conndata\Dxamex\Mapnotes.tbl file.
  2. Caution   Make a copy of the original Mapnotes.tbl file before modifying it.

  3. Comment out the following lines by typing a semicolon (;) before the first character:
  4. FullName = ISEQUAL( Resource, "", X500( FullName, "CN" ), Strip( FullName, ";", "L", "R" ) )
    DN = ISEQUAL( Resource, "", X500( FullName, "CN" ), Strip( FullName, ";", "L", "R" ) )
    
    
  5. Add the following lines:
  6. FullName = ISEQUAL( TRIM(LastName FirstName), "", FullName, TRIM(LastName FirstName) )
    DN = ISEQUAL( TRIM(LastName FirstName), "", FullName, TRIM(LastName ", " FirstName) )
    
    
  7. Save the file.
  8. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  9. Navigate to Connectors.
