Default "File As" Incorrect after importing from excel

I tried importing contacts from excel and everything went smootly, but for
some reason it files all the contacts [LastFirst] instead of [Last,First].
Its really annoying because I have to go through each contact and change it,
any idea how I can fix this? I tried importing it as csv and txt files with
the same results. In outlook I set the default new contact to [Last,First].
Thanks.

File As settings will not apply to imported Contacts. It has been ever thus.
