Using Proper case with Brackets/Parentheses


Board Regular
Nov 17, 2004

I'm using Change Event code to convert strings to Proper Case (using vbProperCase), which works fine changing "client name" to "Client Name".
However, where there is a string such as "client name (location)", it just converts to "Client Name (location)" - i.e. it doesn't change the first letter after the parenthesis.

Putting a space between the "(" and "l" does make capitalise the "L", but the layout doesn't look right with a space.

Even if the "(Location)" already uses a capital L, the code changes it to lower case.

Is there another code to use instead of vbProperCase?

Code used is:
If IsNumeric(Target.Value) = False Then _
Target = StrConv(Target.Text, vbProperCase)
Many thanks,
