i suppose words are separated only by space (or spaces)... then the following should work: (i is integer, s is a string, and b is a boolean)

b:=true;
for i:=1 to Length(s) do begin
   if (b) then begin
      if (s[i]<>' ') then begin
         s[i]:=UpCase(s[i]);
         b:=false;
      end;
   end else begin
      if (s[i]=' ') then b:=true;
   end;
end;

hello lychee

i am not sure if i have awarded you your well deserved points

i am new to the web and new to programming so things at the moment are a little bit confusing

i suppose with time i will get better

your program suggestion worked great

i hadnt come across the boolean statement before so it took me a bit of time to look it up and work it out from there

but it does the job and i am greatfull

cheers
