Do you want the entire word capitalized or do you want just the first letter? Also will the field contain multiple words?

LillyCAuthor Commented:
Just the first letter capitalized and yes the field could contain multiple words.

Randy PooleCommented:
To capitalize just the first letter of the first word then you could use
>@< as the fields format.  If you need the first letter of every word then you would need to format it via a function when the field is updated or when you display it.

I have tried to put >@< in the fields format but it changes to ><@ and doesn't capitalize the first letter?
