Capitalising report generator output

From Catalyst
Jump to: navigation, search


Sometimes it is useful to have the output of the Report Generator to be in a certain case ('UPPER' or 'lower' case). For example Royal Mail suggest it is good practice for computer printed addresses to be in capitals to help the sorting machines.


$UPSTR{A03} would output the Account Name (A03) in upper case. Catalyst Computer Systems would become CATALYST COMPUTER SYSTEMS.

Just substitute 'A03' for any Report Generator text variable.

$LOSTR{} will do the same in the other direction, forcing lower case.
