ER=> I'm trying  to write a  routine that will  take a string  from another
    program which converts everything  to ALL CAPS back  to a form that  is
    more  pleasing  to  the  eye.    This  relys  on  the string having two
    components (in my case a FirstName LastName).  Anyone have a pointer or
    two to share  to clean this  up so it  can take however  many different
    parts its needs and maybe a bit simpler?

        Here is a subroutine that will convert your string into lower  case
you name. The function will convert  all the characters of the string  into
lower case except the first character of the string and the ones  following
a space.

FUNCTION ToLower$(x$)
        p=instr(p+1,u$," ")

        If you want the best way to do it, you can use assembly. If you are
interested, just drop me a line, I'll post the precedure you need.
