I am working on a set of data that has over 40,000 records on ArcGIS and I want to use a Proper Case for several fields/columns on the table.

Is there a Python Script that can help me automate this process as I desire to save time while working on this records?

If you mean a capital letter at the start of each word you can use python's title method


where str is your input field.

You can use this in field calculator on all records

    You cant run the field calculator in all columns at the same time. Do you have many columns? If not you're probably best just repeating it, but if there are too many you could write a python script and an update cursor resources.arcgis.com/de/help/main/10.1/index.html#//… Nov 6, 2015 at 13:58
