Proper Case Question - State Abbreviation

I use a formula in Notes (version 5) to display address information on documents in the following format:

2215 Sanders Road, 0581796
Northbrook, Il 60062
(800) 111-2222
(800) 333-4444 Fax

The formula is:

@ProperCase(PHP_ADR_LN1) + ",  " + @ProperCase(LOC_CD) +
@NewLine + @ProperCase(PHP_ADR_LN2) +
@NewLine + TEM_CBK_PHN_NB +
@NewLine + TEM_FAX_NB + "  " + "Fax"

The PHP_ADR_LN2 component contains the City, State and Zip Code information.  What I need to do is to display the state abbreviation in UPPER Case while leaving the rest of the information in PROPER case.  

Assuming that I don't ask the data provider to modify their format, how should I approach this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help

Mike

This should do it.  Just set the value variable to your PHP_ADR_LN2 variable.

value := "city, state zip";
stateZip := @RightBack(value; ", ");
city := @LeftBack(value; ", ");
state := @LeftBack(stateZip; " ");
zip := @RightBack(stateZip; " ");
@ProperCase(city) + ", " + @UpperCase(state) + " " + zip

Hi

Sorry I am a beginning programer and I lack the experience of many people who use this sight.  This is how I modified the code based on your answer and it errors out requesting "an operator or a semicolon was expected but none was found".

Please advise it appears I don't understand how to set the value variable to the PHP_ADR_LN2 variable

value := "city, state zip";
PHP_ADR_LN2 = value;
stateZip := @RightBack(value; ", ");
city := @LeftBack(value; ", ");
state := @LeftBack(stateZip; " ");
zip := @RightBack(stateZip; " ");
@ProperCase(city) + ", " + @UpperCase(state) + " " + zip

@ProperCase(PHP_ADR_LN1) + ",  " + @ProperCase(LOC_CD) +
@NewLine + @ProperCase(value) +
@NewLine + TEM_CBK_PHN_NB +
@NewLine + TEM_FAX_NB + "  " + "Fax"

No problem, here ya go...

value := PHP_ADR_LN2;
stateZip := @RightBack(value; ", ");
city := @LeftBack(value; ", ");
state := @LeftBack(stateZip; " ");
zip := @RightBack(stateZip; " ");
@ProperCase(city) + ", " + @UpperCase(state) + " " + zip

FYI: That will give you just the formatted City, State Zip format.

For your entire formula, you would use this...


value := PHP_ADR_LN2;
stateZip := @RightBack(value; ", ");
city := @LeftBack(value; ", ");
state := @LeftBack(stateZip; " ");
zip := @RightBack(stateZip; " ");
formattedCityStateZip := @ProperCase(city) + ", " + @UpperCase(state) + " " + zip;

@ProperCase(PHP_ADR_LN1) + ",  " + @ProperCase(LOC_CD) +
@NewLine + formattedCityStateZip +
@NewLine + TEM_CBK_PHN_NB +
@NewLine + TEM_FAX_NB + "  " + "Fax";

Your code looks good

Got any idea why my code below errors out now and requests a semicolon or an operator where the 2nd parenthese is of (PHP_ADR_LN1) statement - I don't see a problem with this coding.  Is it confusing PHP_ADR_LN1 with PHP_ADR_LN2?
 
@ProperCase(PHP_ADR_LN1) + ",  " + @ProperCase(LOC_CD) +
@NewLine + value +
@NewLine + TEM_CBK_PHN_NB +
@NewLine + TEM_FAX_NB + "  " + "Fax"

Thanks
