Greetings!
I have this in one of my queries, and I need to have it return the value in Proper Case.

FirstNameBase: IIf(InStr([Record Disposition]![Customer],Chr$(32))>0,Mid([Record Disposition]![Customer],1,InStr([Record Disposition]![Customer],Chr$(32))-1),[Record Disposition]![Customer])

Thanks!
Dennis

Use the StrConv function with option 3 which makes each first letter upper case.

StrConv("test me",3)

Open in new window

Thanks Craig!

Okay, I tried that, but with this approach it gives me an invalid syntax error:

FirstName:StrConv(FirstNameBase: IIf(InStr([Record Disposition]![Customer],Chr$(32))>0,Mid([Record Disposition]![Customer],1,InStr([Record Disposition]![Customer],Chr$(32))-1),[Record Disposition]![Customer]),3)

Thougths!
Thanks!

Oops, nevermind, I  had some noise in there where I copied from my original formula.
All is good in the lands!
Thanks Craig!
