Hi. Creating nameplates for a race. This is new to me and I am a bit lost. Working with a database that has 5000 names to be placed to end up with 5000 nameplates each with a different name on it. Each name needs to be in capitals though and of course that is not how they appear. I believe I can use UPPER to achieve this but having problems making it work. I've gotten as far as adding my variable to the page but when I edit the expression I get an error message or just one name shows up on all the nameplates.Could anyone help me figure out what I am doing wrong?
