  1. Some of these tips appear simple but they come in handy when you need them. Thanks Ed

    I had to do some data cleanup in the past few months for a client and was using "tolower()" on a regular basis to see if names matched up. Some were all UPPER, some were MiXeD and some were lower.

    I love the fact that this sits in the Console and I can just test with it live too 🙂

    The ToUpper() and ToLower() methods on Strings are great for ensuring consistency. I have also found that converting to Proper Case can be useful.
