Hi everyone, Can you help me to force the entry of the Surname and the 1st letter of the first name of an individual in Capital letters in a form

@tuumaprojectdata, have you gone through our support article Restricting Text Responses With Regular Expressions? It should help you solve your issue.

Maybe you could focus to this section of the article:

Yes I read it but my problem is not solved. I would like the names of the respondents to be written like this: Kobe BRYANT

Hello @tuumaprojectdata,

You can use the following regex function:

regex(., '^[A-Z]{1}[a-z]{1,}[ ]{1}[A-Z]{1,}$')

You need to put this for the validation code.

My problem persists with your proposal

Hi @tuumaprojectdata,

I thought you use Name SURNAME as your format. In SURNAME Name format you can use this one:

regex(., '^[A-Z]{1,}[ ]{1}[A-Z]{1}[a-z]{1,}$')

Thank you, the problem is partially solved if the person has only one first name; but if she has several first names the code does not work anymore

Hi @tuumaprojectdata,

In that case you can try this one: :slight_smile:

regex(., '^([A-Z]{1,}\s)([A-Z]{1}[a-z]{1,}\s?)+$')

It is resolved. Thank you. Also, can you help me code the numbers and date of the identity documents? in example: B12764538 of 15/09/2018

Hi Hakan,

This is Priyanka here. I want name to be entered only in capital letter. It can be 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 words in the name of the participant.
I used the following regex but and it allow 3 words in name eg REEMA DEVI MISHRA.
regex(., ‘^[A-Z]{1,}[ ][A-Z]{1,}[ ][A-Z]{1,}$’)

so my problem here is, some time it can be 2 words sometimes 3 or 4 or 5 so in this case what should be my regex?

Please help me on this.

Hi @Priyanka,

Following should work: :slight_smile:

regex(., '^[A-Z\W]+$')

Thank you Hakan!

It is working.

regex(., ‘^[A-Z\s]+$’) works too.
