UCASE and LCASE Functions in MySQL

This article explains how we can change the case of values from any column from the MySQL table. To convert all the column values to uppercase the UCASE() function is used. Similarly to convert values to lowercase, the LCASE function is used.

The UCASE() function

The syntax of UCASE function is as follows:

SELECT UCASE(column)
FROM table;

To convert all the values in a specific column of any table to uppercase using UCASE in MySQLi, pass the query for changing case to the query function of the mysqli object. The following example converts all values in patient_fname column to uppercase




Using UCASE Function in Mysqli



connect_error) {
    die("Connection not established: " . $connection->connect_error);
} 
    
$query = "Use Hospital;";
$connection->query($query);
    
// Using UCASE Function

$query = "SELECT UCASE(patient_fname) ".
"FROM Patient ";
$output = $connection->query($query);

if ($output->num_rows > 0) {
    // output data of each row
    while($row = $output->fetch_assoc()) {
        echo "Patient Firstname " . $row["UCASE(patient_fname)"]."
"; } } else { echo "0 results"; } $connection->close(); ?>

$query = "SELECT LCASE(patient_fname) ".
"FROM Patient ";
$output = $connection->query($query);

if ($output->num_rows > 0) {
    // output data of each row
    while($row = $output->fetch_assoc()) {
        echo "Patient Firstname " . $row["LCASE(patient_fname)"]."
"; } } else { echo "0 results"; } $connection->close(); ?>
