How Do I Create a Sentence Case Text Field in SQL?

During a recent SQL server reporting writing project, the client wanted to display a text field that has various cases for the two values stored within, and wanted it standardised to sentence case.


Unfortunately, currently SQL does not have a ProperCase function, so to achieve this one has to use a combination of the UPPER and LOWER functions.

SELECT UPPER(LEFT(Tablename.Fieldname, 1)) +(LOWER(RIGHT(Tablename.Fieldname, LEN(Tablename.Fieldname)-1)))  AS [Proper Case Field]

FROM Table
