    input mask for surname and first name

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to create my table in design view(MS ACCESS 2010). In Field Properties, I click on the ellipse for creating the input mask, the wizard pops up, but I'm only getting samples for zip codes, dates, etc. no name samples. How can I create a mask that is 30 characters long, upper case? Obviously, most last names aren't going to be 30 characters long, but I can't seem to create one properly.

    Thanks in advance

    To Make text Uppercase

    If you put the data entry form into design mode.
    eg.On the field that holds the FirstName, on the Event - AfterUpdate, put the code

    me.FirstName = UCase(me.firstName)

    this will convert the text to Upper Case

    - Replace "FirstName" with your field name

    Kind Regards
    Helen Burns
