lower case to upper case letters

Post by JERRY » Thu Feb 27, 2003 4:16 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to change the descriptions of points from any lowercase letters to all uppercase letters? I have been taking it to Excell and working it that way.

Thanks in advance,
Jerry

The only way to do it is really just a replacing of the entire description with a new one. It could be done via the ADT window or the Graphical Database Editor - but it is simply a replacement not a conversion of character cases. Other wise, we can not do it internally and using Excel is a good work around.

Hi Jerry,

If you have an internet connection you can do a search for "lisp shareware". There are a lot of sites that have lisp freeware/shareware that will do UPPER to lower case conversions and vice versa, plus a whole lot of other useful routines.

LISP

Keep in mind that not all LISP routines will work in MSCAD directly and some will require you to do some minor changes in the programming code.
