Access Howto:

Convert String to ProperCase, UPPERCASE, lowercase by JoeMiller
Posted: 4 Jun 01

A question often asked is how to convert text from some case to Proper Case like the Excel function Proper().  Access has a function that does what Proper() does and a whole lot more like UPPERCASE and lowercase.  The function is StrConv().

It's usage is like so:


For each type, the vbCaseToConvert is the following:

CaseDesired = Constant
ProperCase = vbProperCase
UpperCase = vbUpperCase
LowerCase = vbLowerCase

So to convert a variable named strString which equals "jim bean drinks a lot of alcohol." to Proper Case we would do the following:

strString = StrConv(strString, vbProperCase)

And we'd get "Jim Bean Drinks A Lot Of Alcohol." as our answer.  Hope that helps, please leave me email with comments and questions!
