So I'm basically trying to validate a column in my SharePoint list to have a Specific letter as the starting character of the field. I'm running into an issue with capitalization. I need the first character to be only uppercase. This is what I currently have but it is not validating for only uppercase. (67 is the ascii code for the letter "c"). Thank you!

CODE(MID([Column Name],1,1)=UPPER(67))

1 Answer 1



=CODE(MID([Column Name],1,1))=67


=CODE(LEFT([Column Name],1))=67

CODE returns a number.
