    Hi Dave

    To ensure names are places correctly in the first place:-
    In a Table use this as your input mask
    >L<??????????????????


    To get just the first letter and make it a capital (for use in letters ect)
    In a query add a new field use this
    Capital: Left([NameField],1)

    Press F1 to get more info

    Hope this helps

    Be careful what you ask for. If you're doing this with people's names,
    you'll get incorrect names such as Macphee instead of MacPhee, Van der
    steen instead of van der Steen, O'brian instead of O'Brian.

    But to permanently convert the field to first letter capital, rest
    lower case, regardless of the current casing, use an Update query;
    update the field to

    UCase(Left([fieldname], 1)) & LCase(Mid([fieldname], 2))

    To update it to Proper Case (Each Word Capitalized, Including
    Macdonald And Van Der Steen), update to

    StrConv([fieldname], 3)

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!
