    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
