    I have a an address field in my form. I would like to convert the first
    letters of any letter to upper case e.g., if I enter 123 pleasantville ave
    apt# 11
    It should be converted to 123 Pleasantville Ave Apt# 11

    How do I do that?

    Please do a search. How to do this in a Name field is asked very
    frequently. the answer here would be pretty much the same.

    The short answer is that you would need to do it manually - there are too
    many exceptions to do it automatically.

    What about:

    123 McMillin Street?
    444 NW 18th Street? (Nw?)
    12 de los Santos Avenue

    Etc.

    Check Access HELP for the StrConv() function, using vbProperCase.

    As Rick points out, this will force capitalization of every word. Rather
    that doing it all manually, though, you could:
    * make a backup copy
    * use the StrConv() function
    * apply USB (using someone's brain) to review and spot those few you'd
    need to uncapitalize

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!
