You can't configure QuickBase to automatically convert all text fields to uppercase and even if you could I would not do so because it would probably be the exception rather than the rule where you needed this feature. For example, addresses on US mail pieces are supposed to be in upper case but most other text fields in your application would not have this requirement.

However it is simple using the image onload technique to convert both simple text and multi-line text fields to uppercase. As matter of fact, the image onload technique will solve all your problems. I have never encountered a QuickBase problem that could not be solved with the image onload techniqe. - it is that good. All hail the IOL!
