Test for Lowercase in Query

Test for Lowercase in Query

Test for Lowercase in Query

Hello this is a similar question to my previous one regarding problems with null / empty cells

In the query I would like to show whether a field ([AccountName]) contains lowercase characters.

The code I have works when the field has an empty string, but not when null.

My code is as follows:

CheckAccountName: StrComp(UCase([AccountName]),[AccountName],0)

Could someone suggest a more robust approach?

Many thanks Mark

"The code I have works when the field has an empty string, but not when null." - I would try this:


CheckAccountName: StrComp(UCase(AccountName & ""), AccountName & "", 0)

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.
