Hope you can help.
Our office has recently upgraded to MS Office XP. We can't install SP3 for Office XP - it breaks our other apps.
We have about 200 or so form letters we use to send to clients using many "If" statements to send them the information they need. We will also use "includetext" strings to another Word document to bring in that information.
Sometimes, in that "external" document, there is an "if" statement that references to one of the mergefields (ie FirstName, LastName), on which we also put formatting switches ( \* Caps).
What we are finding is that in the main document, when the includetext brings over the name, it's in all UPPER case, just the way it is brought over from our database.
The flow of what it is doing may look like this:
main document w/includetext > external document > "if" statement with mergefield \*Caps.
Word is not completing all the commands we have given it by not putting the name in First Initial in Caps with the rest lower case.
Have any of you heard of this? If so, does anybody know a solution?
Thanks.
Stacy

I just thought I'd give you the solution I found out of the blue.
Instead of using \*Caps,
use \* lower \*FirstCap
Both of them apparently need to be used
Thank you to anybody who may have read this post.

Thanks, Stacy. It's GREAT to provide the solution if you find it elsewhere. You can also mark your own threads Solved using the Thread Tools dropdown on the top bar. I've done it for you. :)
