Does anyone know how to convert upper case values to mixed case using crystal reports?  I can't find it anywhere in the functions lists anywhere.  I would appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Barbara

There is Proper Case:
In your formula type:
          ProperCase({SCHEMA.FIELD})

This would change     'FIRSTNAME LASTNAME'    to    'Firstname Lastname'



is that what you mean..

For CR 8.5 and earlier, search for and download UFLcaps.exe, on Crystal Decisions web site.
This gived you U2lcaps.dll and Uflcaps.dll which are user function libraries that add the
LeadingCaps() function under Additional Functions in Crystal's formula editor.

Thanks for the replies.  We do have version 8.5.

New question:  Has anyone seen the page header or report headers repeating in every row prior to the data?  For example if my report looks like:
  Name      Number
  Barbara   123
  Gonzales 456

When I export it, it looks like:
Name, Number, Barbara, 123
Name, Number, Gonzales, 456

To what format are you exporting to ? Yes, some of the formats like DIF will produce that kind of results.

Exporting to the RTF format didn't work so we exported the headings separately from the data.  Thanks for the help!
