Users first and last name are reversed under Account for Japanese customers

Last Updated: May, 2019


Launch any Office app and go to File, then Account. Under User Information you will see the users name. In the Japanese language, the user family name should be display first, followed by their first name. The current displayed order is reversed.


This issue is fixed in Current Channel Version 1904 (Build 11601.20178) and higher. To get the latest update immediately, open any Office app and choose File > Account > Update Options > Update Now.
