In this case a form related macro solution might be simple, I guess.
Indeed, but what the op was hoping for (I think) was input masks, as
exist in dBase products, where at design time the designer specifies
the format of what can be input. So you could define a mask for a
field like 'XXX XXX' which would force entry of two groups of three
alphanumerics, only allowing numbers and capital letters.
Handy since what appears on screen when entering data is exactly the
way it is entered into the data, whereas (I think) the suggested
solution of making the database field case sensitive achieves the same
end result but doesn't look the same during entry (does it?)
Having said all of that, it doesn't exist in Base ("yet" :-) ).
One small step for mankind...
