    Is there a function that will convert my text from ALL CAPS to Proper Case?
    I've found some postings with vbProperCase but I don't know vb.

    You can use StrConv - you might want to start by making a backup of your
    database! Then create a SELECT query that includes the field that you wish to
    update. Convert this query to an UPDATE query – use the Expression Builder in
    the Update row of the grid as follows:

    Field: MyFieldName
    Table: MyTableName
    Update To: StrConv([MyFieldName], 3)

    Note for Uppercase use 1 and lower case use 2 – this actually changes the
    case rather than the format property which only changes how text is displayed.

    Thank you, that worked great. But now I have a follow up. Is there any way
    to avoid issues like acronyms going from ABC to Abc? Or ABC LLC going to Abc
    Llc?

    Hmmm - can't think of any unless you know what they are and can use criteria
    to exclude those from the update? There may be a way using VB but I'm not a
    VB person I'm afraid, Sorry

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!
