Switching Surnames and given names - Tech question

Dear Community!

My issue is technical.
I made my family tree a few years earlier with a previous version of FTM, and just took it out to extend it with relatives.

My problem is that when I first did the tree I entered names the way they are written in Hungarian: Surname Given name.

Because of that the program has read them the other way around (as used in English).

SO now I have all my records the wrong way around: Given names are recorded as Surnames / Surnames as given names, but at least it is consistantly wrong.
I could go and re/write each record individually, but that is not really feasible as I already have over 300 records.

Does anyone know of a way in which I could switch around the
given and surname in all of my records?

Thank you very much for your help.
Best Regards,
a
