I have a db that has the city and county that are all uppercase, I know I can use an agent to change the fields to propercase.

So I wrote the following very quick and easy agent, now as you can tell development is not only NOT my forte but I never ever do it!

@ProperCase (County);

However, when I run it against forms it does nothing I am sure I am missing something, I want it to replace the Word SUFFOLK in the field County to Suffolk.

This is still the agent?
Is it running on e.g. selected documents?
