    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.
