      Description

      When a data values is: Last, First M. the importer stashes the middle initial as part of the forename when the record is created via the entitySplitter

      When a data value is First M. Last it parses the middle initial out into Middle Name

      As a result the two versions of the name don’t merge/match in a single record. Can we adjust the importer to separate the middle initial when last name comes first in the data?
