If you're doing at the backend level, then you'll need to use UPPER.  If you're doing it at the front-end in Access, then you'll need to use UCASE.

UPDATE Table1 SET Table1.BIN= UCase([BIN]);

Make a backup first.

I used the Update Query because I want the changes saved.  I used the Access version but it is good to know the SQL 2005 version.  Thanks for all your help.
