In yesterday’s tip, I showed an example of changing a block of text from upper case to lower case. However, I didn’t show how to actually change the text.

Just select the text, and use the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+Shift+U or Ctrl+Shift+L to change the text to upper case or lower case respectfully. Like most things in SSMS, these can be selected from a menu also. In this case, they hang off of the Advanced submenu from the Edit menu:

As you can see, it’s just a simple key press to quickly change the case of your text. It’s unfortunate that SSMS doesn’t support other options, such as Camel Case.
