I am trying to find a way to format the text fields in my small data base to
be uppercase only. Is there a way to do it at the table field level with the
'format', or can it only be done at the form level through a pattern field
using 'X'?

Since 'x' and 'X' are different characters, this has nothing to do with "formatting". Set the field type to VARCHAR_IGNORECASE so 'x' and 'X' are considered as equivalent. In queries you can use the UCASE or UPPER function in order to display the upper case version of the text.
