    Using STRCONV function in Access 2003 to convert text data has the following
    effect
    on hyphenated words:

    SMITH-JONES converts to Smith-jones

    However using the Word 2003 case converter will convert this string to
    Smith-Jones. How can I get the same functionality ie the next letter after
    the hyphen is upper cased, into Access 2003?

    Thanks

    You'll need to break the name into two, and then use the STRCONV

    strconv(left("JONS-SMITH",instr("JONS-SMITH","-")-1),vbProperCase) & "-" &
    strconv(Mid("JONS-SMITH",instr("JONS-SMITH","-")+1),vbProperCase)
    --
    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. That way, it will
    stay saved for a longer time, so other can benifit from it.

    Good luck

    Thanks for that Ofer, much appreciated. I just find it incredble that these
    functions work differently in different areas of an integrated package.

    Again, thanks.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
