Manipulating Text Strings in CR 6.0

Manipulating Text Strings in CR 6.0

Manipulating Text Strings in CR 6.0

There's no function in Crystal Reports 6.o that will change the format of a text string to leading caps (e.g., convert the text strings "rice" or "RICE" to "Rice". Anyone know of a workaround, third party add on, whatever, that will accomplich this?

RE: Manipulating Text Strings in CR 6.0

There is a user-defined function in Seagate's web site:
www.seagatesoftware.com/crystalreports located in their technical papers. Select USER-FUNCTION libraries and download UFLCAPS.EXE
There should be instructions on where to place this .DLL file.
Once it is in place, when you are looking at the formula editor, you will see it as an available function.
