I received the answer from CEkman to capitalize the first word in the entry of a text box and it works great. How to I make this code loop to the next word and so on?
(using ACCESS97)
the following procedure changes the first letter of field [companyname] to upper case. This example puts the code in theAFTERUPDATE event of the field you want to change so the first letter is capitalized whenever the field is modified.

Private Sub CompanyName_AfterUpdate()
Dim x As Variant
Dim newstring As String
newstring = Me![CompanyName]
x = StrConv(Left(newstring, 1), 1)
Mid(newstring, 1, 1) = x
Me![CompanyName] = newstring
End Sub

Try to use the next code to do that you ask:

Private Sub CompanyName_AfterUpdate()
  me![CompanyName] = StrConv(me![CompanyName], vbProperCase)
End Sub

This works (see the help for the other parameters that you use in the StrConv.

I hope this help you
