    I entered the CSS code to transform the letters of the field to All CAPS, in view all OK. but, both the PDF print and the Talbella display lowercase characters.

    How can I do to have the data and printouts in All Caps?

    Thank you

    To my understanding, you are referring to the CSS text-transform property.

    https://www.w3schools.com/cssref/pr_text_text-transform.asp

    I would like to apologize for any inconvenience. As you already know, I'm afraid that the CSS text-transform property only changes how the input looks on the form but it will not have any effect on the submitted data that appears on the Jotform Tables and on the (original) PDF copy of the submission.

    But perhaps there is a workaround that you can try if you only need the input capitalized on the PDF submission when you print it. The workaround may also require you to use a customized PDF, not the original PDF.

    If that could work for you, please feel free to let us know so we can start testing the workaround before we give you the instructions on how you can apply it to your form.

    I don't think the solution is the one suggested, I need to have the moduto data in uppercase, so solving a custom PDF does not solve the problem

    Thank's

    I would like to apologize for any confusion. What I was suggesting is that we can create a customized PDF copy of your form submissions where the data that were submitted on your form will be in uppercase in that PDF copy. However, if what you really need as an output is the uploaded original PDF's format,

    then I'm afraid that there is no available option to make the input in that PDF format uppercase.

    Very strange that there is no solution for direct uppercase pdf output.

    Just put in the PDF script

    event.value = event.value.toUpperCase ();

    In any case, jotform is Fantastic

    Thank you
