I have many strings of company names -- "Big Consulting Co (china) Ltd" as an example.  Note that the first letter after the "(" is lower case -- but should be upper case -- ie: "Big Consulting Co (China) Ltd".

I've tried to fix this using reReplace, as follows:

reReplace(thisString, "\([a-z]", "\([A-Z]")

Open in new window


but this does not work.

Can anyone help me understand the correct syntax to use?
