    As I understood that you want to force users to input only uppercase letters. Please follow these steps:

    1.Select the text box field, click the gear icon and open the "Options" tab.

    @ symbol state as Mask Letters, please fill your field with @@@

    For finding your custom CSS code please follow these steps:

    1. Select the text box field, click the gear icon and open the "Advanced" tab and scroll down to open Field Details and copy your Field IDs.

    After following these steps you can write #input_4 {text-transform: uppercase;}  to CSS field and do not forget to save it.

    I'm afraid that collecting IBAN numbers are considered sensitive information and may not be collected using JotForm forms, please do check our terms of use page here: http://www.jotform.com/terms/.

    If you are asking for payments, from your users, it is a must to use our payment integrations. To set up an order or payment form, please follow this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/165-Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form

    However, we can make an exception, only if you send a proof that your business is related to MORTGAGE BROKER, INSURANCE BROKER BANK, Real Estate Broker, LENDING INSTITUTIONS and the like. 

    In such a case, collecting bank accounts can be allowed and it's not illegal. 

    Otherwise, such a field has to be removed from the form(s).

    Regarding your second question, aside from the CSS uppercase text transform, and input mask, I don't see another way to make sure that your users entered the data you expect.

    But, for full name, why don't you use Full name field:

    That should work for you?
