I have a simple login dialog box that has a text box (txtUser) and a Login button (cmdLogin).  The user will type their initials in the text box then clicking the login button verifies the initials and passes the txtUser to a global public variable (gstrUser).  I would like the gstrUser text to always be upper case so when they modify a record their initials are entered in the UserID field in the form.

How can I make gstrUser always be caps???

Thanks

When you pass the txtUser into the gstrUser, you could switch it to uppercase.   I'm assuming the command botton runs a little bit of vb.

gstrUser = UCASE(me.txtUser)

another place you may want to add that code might be the before update event

Private Sub Form_BeforeUpdate(Cancel As Integer)

   gstrUser = Ucase(me.txtUser)

End Sub
