Problems at Guat/Mexican Border: issue with registration - Help!

Wondering if anyone has any advice regarding issues crossing into Mexico, specifically with paperwork. Tried to cross today, and the Banjercito office has rejected us entering today due to a problem with our registration.

Our registration is Panamanian (we are canadian, exporting from Panama to Canada), and the name on it is in the wrong format apaprently. Instead of being Last name, first name, middle name it is listed as Middle, last, first. Everything else matches including passport number. We've shown them other export paperwork with the name in various formats, but they would not budge. Also tried explaining that its impossible to go back to Panama to change.....

We are trying at a smaller border (La mesilla), so they said we should wait until the management comes in on Monday. Which we are doing. Another option is maybe ask a notary or lawyer to confirm each rendition of the name is the same person...

If anyone has encountered paperwrok issues with Mexican border crossings, and has any advice we'd love to hear it!

Went back the next day and was processed within 30minutes. Easy peasy!

Hot Tip if you encounter border issues, just go back for the night shift, or the next day when new people are working.
