Subject:      How to decide the case of words in a column in a dataset
Comments: To: sas-l@uga.edu

I wonder how to find out what case a word in a column in a data set is in. I have made an example to illustrate the task. The field TEXT contains just one word. Does SAS have a function to use here ? Or how can I use regular expression if that is a possibility ?
