Example 16-33 Converting Part of an Expression to Lowercase
Suppose you get some new data to add to a mailing list. In the existing mailing list, people's names have only the first letter capitalized. In the new data, however, the whole name is capitalized. You can use LOWCASE to make the new data correspond to the current data with a statement similar to the following.
lastname = JOINCHARS(EXTCHARS(lastname, 1, 1), - LOWCASE(EXTCHARS(lastname, 2, NUMCHARS(lastname))))
