This MSAccess tutorial explains how to use the Access StrConv function with syntax and examples.
The Microsoft Access StrConv function returns a string converted as specified.
The syntax for the StrConv function in MS Access is:
StrConv ( text, conversion, LCID )
text is the string that you wish to convert.
conversion is the type of conversion to perform. The following is a list of valid parameters for conversion.
|vbUpperCase||1||Converts the string to all uppercase.|
|vbLowerCase||2||Converts the string to all lowercase.|
|vbProperCase||3||Converts the first letter to every word to uppercase. All other characters are left as lowercase. This option is similar to the InitCap function in Oracle.|
|vbUnicode||64||Converts the string to Unicode.|
|vbFromUnicode||128||Converts the string from Unicode to the default code page of the system.|
Note: If you are using the StrConv function in VBA code, you can use the vb parameter listed in the table above. If you are using this function in a query, you will have to use the numeric value.
LCID is optional. If this parameter is omitted, the StrConv function assumes the system LocaleID.
The StrConv function can be used in the following versions of Microsoft Access:
Let's look at how to use the StrConv function in MS Access:
StrConv ("tech on the net", 1) Result: "TECH ON THE NET" StrConv ("TECH ON THE NET", 2) Result: "tech on the net" StrConv ("TECH ON THE NET", 3) Result: "Tech On The Net"
The StrConv function can be used in VBA code in Microsoft Access.
Dim LResult As String LResult = StrConv ("TECH ON THE NET", 3)
In this example, the variable called LResult would now contain the value "Tech On The Net".
Since we are using the StrConv function in VBA, we could also use the vb values for the conversion parameter, such as:
Dim LResult As String LResult = StrConv ("TECH ON THE NET", vbProperCase)
In this example, the variable LResult would also contain the value "Tech On The Net".
You can also use the StrConv function in a query in Microsoft Access.
In this query, we have used the StrConv function as follows:
This query will convert the CategoryName field to proper case and display the results in a column called Expr1. You can replace Expr1 with a column name that is more meaningful.
The results would now be displayed in a column called PropercaseName.
