Hello,

I have the proper function that will change all my existing data to proper case from uppercase, but I would like to know how do I force the user to type the data in as Proper case to begin with?

Any suggestions?
Thanks

You cannot force a Propercase" like Lowercase or Uppercase.

On the AfterUpdate event of the field put

MyField = Proper(MyField)

'MyField = Proper(MyField)'

Don't think so!  You must have a user defined function in your database.

strconv(myfield, vbProperCase)
