BO 4.3 Platform capitalize strings of text in reports

Updated over a week ago

When reporting, you may need to change the capitalization of a string of text to make all the letters upper-case or lower-case.

Upper

To make all letters capital, you can use the upper function.

For example, if the [State] object returns the text "Maryland," you could use the formula =upper([State]) to return the text "MARYLAND," which will have all the letters capitalized.

Lower

Conversely, you may want to remove all capitalization. to do this, you could use the lower function.

For example, if the [State] object returns the text "Maryland," you could use the formula =lower([State]) to return the text "maryland," which will make the letter "m" lowercase.

Initcap

In some situations, you may just want the first letter of a string to be capitalized. This can be done using the Initcap function.

For example, if the [Notes] object returns the text "he will see a doctor next week," you could use the formula =initcap([Notes]) to return the text "He will see a doctor next week," which will capitalize the "H" at the beginning of the text string.

Wordcap

Sometimes you need to capitalize the first letter of every word in a string of text. This can be done using the wordcap function.

For example, if the [Family member name] object returns the text "john smith," you could use the formula =wordcap([Family member name]) to return the text "John Smith," which will capitalize the "J" and "S" at the beginning of each word.
