The principle is simple, look for characters that are preceeded by white space, but any program that does a reasonable job of converting to mixed case needs to handle somewhere between hundreds and thousands of exceptions. Besides the obvious things like prepositions and articles, think about things that are hyphenated and contain slashes. Don't forget common acronyms. Then there are names with prefixes like "McTell" or "D'Artagnan." Good luck--any program like this is a work in progress. The best thing about it is you don't have to deal with numbers. <g> -----Original Message----- From: Leland, David [mailto:dleland@Harter.com] Sent: Friday, November 19, 1999 9:33 AM To: 'MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com' Subject: Convert uppercase to mixed case Does anyone have a generic routine (RPG) for converting uppercase to mixed case? I'm looking to convert all our customer and vendor names and addresses from upper to mixed.
