I am sorry about that. Use this one instead:Fcodes ([FCodes.KBD_ALLCAP]);

Fcodes ([FCodes.TXT_UPPERCASE]);

Add this to the end of your code. Fcodes only work on the active, visible document. If you want to do this on an invisible document, like while you are processing a book, it will be a little more complicated.

Hi Frameexpert,

Thanks for your response,

your code is updating the CharFmt and PgfFmt to uppercase, and the Pgf looks in uppercase. But the actual text is in lowercase only. When you copy the updated text to a notepad, it will be lowercase only. I just want to update Lowercase alphabets to uppercase alphabets without modifying its Pgf and Char formats.

It is similar to the option "ab   Ab  AB" available in the "Text Formatting" toolbar of the Framemaker application.

Please guide me how to use this option in FM Scripting.
