I have a table that was imported as all UPPER CASE and I would like to turn it into Proper Case. What script have any of you used to complete this?
Here's a UDF that will do the trick...
create function ProperCase(@Text as varchar(8000)) returns varchar(8000) as begin declare @Reset bit; declare @Ret varchar(8000); declare @i int; declare @c char(1); select @Reset = 1, @i=1, @Ret = ''; while (@i <= len(@Text)) select @c= substring(@Text,@i,1), @Ret = @Ret + case when @Reset=1 then UPPER(@c) else LOWER(@c) end, @Reset = case when @c like '[a-zA-Z]' then 0 else 1 end, @i = @i +1 return @Ret end
You will still have to use it to update your data though.
