Change Between UPPER, lower, and Proper Case

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how to convert strings (such as names) to UPPER CASE, lower case, and Proper Case. You will learn how to use the StrConv function in your queries. We'll create an update query to change all of the names in your customer table.

Mira from Hamburg, Germany (a Gold Member) asks: My people are horrible at data entry. Half of them type in ALL CAPS and the other half don't know where the Shift key even is. I've got names of all kinds in my Customer table. How can I clean this up?


Members will learn how to create a MyProperCase function which will convert names that have been typed in all caps or all lowercase, but will leave names that already have mixed case in them alone, such as McDonald or D'Angelo.

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

I loved that change case video that was very interesting.  I never knew to do that in a database.  I thought everything in a database is all capitals.  I just did it with my contact database to proper case.  I'm learning a lot from you.  Besides watching the lessons i'm getting I been watching all the techhelp videos and extended cuts too.

I have question about ndoing the update queries when i do change case in my databases.  I'm just curious about this. Do I have to save the queries after i run the queries to update my databases with the change case?  Now I got in the mood of changing my databases to proper case.  I think looks more professional.

The Change Case video for all viewers, comes on as the Default Value video from 3/7. The extended cut is the correct video.
