Hi All,
Is there a Function in WebFOCUs to convert the String to InitCap.
Eg: "CAR" to "Car" and "COUNTRY" to "Country"

Regards,
MSAM

there is in most databases, or you can create a function on your database to do it.

I'm not sure about webfocus, it's just another option.

In WebFOCUS the function is called LCWORD.

The syntax:
LCWORD(length, string, outfield)

An example:
SYSTEMDESC/A40 = LCWORD(40, SYSTEM_DESC, 'A40');

Take a look at "Character Functions" in the Function Reference document.

msam: sorry, I suppose since your original post even referenced the oracle (?) function InitCap, you probably already know that you can do this in the SQL world.
