Try this.

if(/[^A-Z]/.test(document.move_hdr.sess_user3.value.substring(4,5))
{
//lowercase or not  A - Z(like a ? or ~)
}
else
{
//matches A-Z
}

OK, then instead of checking for lowercase, just "force" the input into upper case:
var data = String(document.move_hdr.sess_user3.value.substring(4,5)).toUpperCase();
alert( data );

>>just "force" the input into upper case:
assuming of course you want only upper case. If you simply want to "remove" any lower case then use:
var data = String(document.move_hdr.sess_user3.value.substring(4,5)).replace(/[a-z]/g,'');
alert( data );

additional ==, use the below code

var re = /[a-z]/;
      if(!re.test(document.move_hdr.sess_user3.value.substring(4,5))) {
       alert('that can't be lowercase!)}

 Putting a ! in front of  the test effectively makes it test the opposite, so you are saying "if not lowercase, alert it is lowercase"
