All caps font for A97 report

P: n/a
MLH
I'm in need of an ALL CAPS FONT for an Access 97 report
mimicking a state government form. All letters are capitalized
in form - that is, there are no lower case letters. But when you
hold the shift key down a type a letter, that letter is a tiny bit
larger font size it seems. I'm not too familiar with fonts. Was
wondering if any of you have ever needed such a critter as
this and where you might have found it.

Of course, I can break labels up into a separate label for the
first character in a word and another label for the balance of
the word. Like T and then RANSPORTATION. The first label
could have a wee bit larger FontSize property. But that would
be kludgy.

It took me about 30 seconds to Google-find an All caps font (free)...
Would you please try that also ??

Did you look at
Copperplate Gothic Bold
Copperplate Gothic Light
or
CrpplGothBT
assuming your computer has them. Also, there are many more fonts
available on your Office installation CD (in the Valuepak folder) that
have not been installed. Whether any of them meet your requirements,
however, only you can tell.

Thx, fredg. I was hoping to find an internal font that would do the
trick. The last time I went surfing for FONTS - I ended up with bull
shit adware all over my box - some vile ass changed my home page.
Whew! Nothing better than working with what you've already got.

Although I appreciate you suggestion, and am sure you mean well,
that's the last option for me. Have had bad experiences surfing font
sites. Some of the most tempting are the cool handwriting fonts. My
box got nailed last time I seriously went after some of those. I've
decided to go with one that shipped with windows.

Perhaps you have the option of producing this report in Word. It has
the ALLCAPS feature you describe built-in.

I just downloaded a freeware 'All caps' font called 'Mandatory' (Mandator.ttf')
It does what you want but it is kind of a boldtype font.
If you are interested, contact me. (free)

I don't believe there is an all-caps font that shipped with any version of
Windows. There are a prodigious number of fonts that are included with
various applications, word processing, publishing, and image-handling. In
addition, I purchased a couple of libraries of images, etc., and got a
thousand or more fonts in each.

But the problem with using those fonts in a program you distribute to others
is that (1) you likely do not have a license to re-distribute that font,
whether you embed it or include it with the package and (2) since you can't
provide it to the users, they likely will not have it, and whatever is
substituted will not show as all-caps.
