Hi Experts
I have a SQL table which contains all Upper Case data.  I moving it from this table to another table where the Data is Proper case ( from PAUL to Paul )  I am not  having any problem with the data when the field only contains one word but when it has two words such as City: NEW YORK I need to find the space with a substring or something to chang it from NEW YORK to New York.  Does anyone have sample SQL code for this?  Thanks
