txt formatting issues with fields in text object

Post Author: David Goldman

CA Forum: General

Hi, complete newbie here. I'm working on my company's estimating form. I was requested to combine fields FCITY FSTATE and FZIP into one line that auto flows any given data. So I used a Text object with field calls to FCITY FSTATE and FZIP. This works very well, however my text is always formated to the way it was entered into the database. ie. if some salesman enters his info with the capslock key on, it shows up in my text object that way, and not in my regular fields. The regular fields are somehow formatting the text to cap the first letter of each word. How can I configure my text object to do this? Thanks

    Format the fields prior to placing them in the text box.

    For example,

    propercase({table.last_name}) & ', ' & propercase({table.first_name}) & ' ' & propercase({table.middle_name});

    Then place the formula in a text box and then right click and check the box next to 'Suppress Embeded Field Blanks'.
