        Do you mean there are 2 spaces after the comma ? In either case take a look at the KB - it describes how to alter the settigns that control the way the DisplayName and Full Name are generated during account creation. Make sure the attribute is either not set (will generate accounts in the form of "First Last") or set it to what you want it to be

          Excellent ... you are absolutely Right .. It was %<sn>.%<givenName>. Extra Space before Last Name ... Just removed the space and it helped .... Superb ...
