Capital Letters in Addresses

Postby Bluenoze87 » 2018-Apr-Fri-05-04

Hey everyone,
As a breaker shipping is one of the things we dread, it's a lot of time and work. I personally would appreciate (I'm sure the others would to) it if you edited your addresses with proper capitalization so that I don't have to edit them when I print labels. :thumbsup

Thanks!

i never bothered to look if an address is in capitals or not, and have never had an issue with delivery over spelling so im kinda confused as to why its needed, other than looking prettier?

L's look like I's in postal codes is the main reason and the other is that it's just proper, lol. Just trying to eliminate any possibility of something going missing.

Well there's a tidbit of information I didn't know. I guess we're just back to proper English capitalization than, lol, I can't not correct it

Also, for every postal code, letters and numbers alternate as L#L #W# and so Canada Post would always know what is a 1, L, 0, and O (although I'm guessing they never use letter Os either).

Lastly, while we're being picky, you were looking for 'then' in your final sentence there, not 'than' :rofl

i used to use excel and had a custom workbook to print out about 14 addresses per page and just cut them out as needed.

long story short, theres macros and formulas your could use to capitalize all words in one go, might be a timesaver for ya

Ya for Word and Excel, if you open up the "Font" box, there is a checkbox to change all words and letters to caps.
