I'm using writer to import data from a database.   Can I set the format on
the field so some entries will be all caps and some will only capitalize the
first letter of a word?  I want to insert names from the database.   Most
entries I want to have only the first letter of the name capitalized, but
some entries I want the name to be all caps.

As stated by Fernand, styles are the way to go.

Just to add some details: you only get *data* from a database. Not formatting, never. The formatting has to be done within the presentation tool, here in the text processor, by applying the appropriate formats wherever you need them.

EG: you may apply an ALL CAPSs or Title Case format to the field you want.
