In this article, we would like to show you how to use UPPER() function in MS SQL Server.

Quick solutions:

SELECT UPPER('some text...');
SELECT UPPER([column_name]) FROM [table_name];

Practical example

To show how the UPPER() function works, we will use the following table:

MS SQL Server - example data used with UPPER() function
MS SQL Server - example data used with UPPER() function

Note:

At the end of this article you can find database preparation SQL queries.

Example

In this example, we will display all the names from users table in uppercase.

Query:

SELECT UPPER([name]) AS [Uppercase names] FROM [users];

Output:

MS SQL Server - UPPERCASE() function result
MS SQL Server - UPPERCASE() function result

Database preparation

create_tables.sql file:

CREATE TABLE [users] (
    [id] INT IDENTITY(1,1),
    [name] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
    [surname] VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
    [department_id] INT,
    [salary] DECIMAL(15,2) NOT NULL,
    PRIMARY KEY ([id])
);

 insert_data.sql file:

INSERT INTO [users]
    ( [name], [surname], [department_id], [salary])
VALUES
    ('John', 'Stewart', 1, '3512.00'),
    ('Chris', 'Brown', 2, '1344.00'),
    ('Kate', 'Lewis', 3, '6574.00'),
    ('Ailisa', 'Gomez', NULL, '6500.00'),
    ('Gwendolyn', 'James', 2, '4200.00'),
    ('Simon', 'Collins', 4, '3320.00'),
    ('Taylor', 'Martin', 2, '1500.00'),
    ('Andrew', 'Thompson', NULL, '2100.00');
