Did you check out the theme of this forum? :)

the theme says DOS batch. that does not mean only pure internal DOS commands only. Right? :) You seem knowledgeable, i am sure you know what i mean.

Re: How to convert string text to uppercase?

DOS/batch is a shell. A shell lets you run commands, whether they are compiled or needs to be run by an "interpreter". So it doesn't matter. Unless you cannot use it explicitly, VBScript comes preinstalled in most Windows OS and is close to doing what you needed in a more convenient sense....
