Friday, November 10th, 2006

When people input their names the data goes in the same format to the Data Base, and I have to correct each time manually.

I will explain you what I would like with examples:
  If the name input is: “RAUL”, I need it transformed to: “Raul”
  If the name input is: “RAúL”, I need it transformed to: “Raúl”
  If the name input is: “raúl”, I need it transformed to: “Raúl”
  If the name input is: “rAUl”, I need it transformed to: “Raul”
  If the name input is: “raUL”, I need it transformed to: “Raul”
