Field format - capitalization

Hi everyone,

 

I would like to change our contact fields from being all caps to initial caps only. I have looked up previous articles and discussions on this subject, but they date from 2010-2012, I'm using a different version of Act! and these instructions aren't working for me. I'm sending out Act! emarketing emails and when I do a mail merge, I don't want the contact to receive an email with their name entirely capitalized. Is there a way to change this?

 

Thanks, 

 

T

 

  • Act! Premium Version 18.1
  • Microsoft Office Version: 1705
  • Shared Database
  • Windows 7

Hi TinaA.

 

You can do this in the Define Fields where you will find that a field can have a Data Type of 'Initial-Caps'

 

BUT ... be aware that this will mean that a surname like 'MacGregor' will show as 'Macgregor'.  ??

 

The Scots might not appreciate that spelling?
