 <%
' this will crop a sentence
Function CropSentence(strText, intLength, strTrial)
  If Len(strText) > intLength Then
    CropSentence = Left(strText, intLength) & strTrial
  Else
    CropSentence = strText
  End If
End Function

what I have below works for the use I want, thanks all for your help.



this will capitilise every word in a sentence.

<%
function proper(str)
  proper = ""
  aStr = split(str," ")
  for i = 0 to ubound(aStr)
    proper = proper & ucase(left(aStr(i),1)) & lcase(right(aStr(i),len(aStr(i))-1)) & " "
  next
  proper = rtrim(proper)
end function
 %>


<%= proper(CropSentence((Recmostofuser.Fields.Item("country_usr").Value),10,"...")) %>



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


'this is for the first letter only and nothing else.


function Proper(str)
  Proper = ucase(left(str,1)) & lcase(right(str,len(str)-1))
end function



<%=Proper(Reclistall.Fields.Item("firstname_usr").Value)%>

you are welcome.

sorry I put
for i=0 to arrText.Length-1

as in ASP.NET insted of

for i = 0 to ubound(aStr)

as in classic ASP
