I am having one column containing both the first-name and second-name. Now i want to make a function which remove all the spaces between first name and last name and make 1st letter as as capital follow with the small letter.

For example if user type..

muKesH          AmBanI

then i will get the Output as a

Mukesh Ambani

only one space is der with 1st letter Capital by using MS SQL server.

    The best solution is to build a function. After some inspiration from the manipulations available online, I adapted it to your query;

    CREATE FUNCTION  FormatString(@text varchar(100))
    RETURNS varchar(100)
    declare @counter int,
            @length int,
            @char char(1),
            @textnew varchar(4000)
        ' @text = 'muKesH  AmBanI'
        set @text       = rtrim(@text)
        set @text       = lower(@text)
        set @length     = len(@text)
        set @counter    = 1
        set @text = upper(left(@text, 1) ) + right(@text, @length - 1)
        while @counter <> @length --+ 1
            select @char = substring(@text, @counter, 1)
            IF @char = space(1)  or @char =  '_' or @char = ','  or @char = '.' or @char = '\'
     or @char = '/' or @char = '(' or @char = ')'
                set @textnew = left(@text, @counter)  + upper(substring(@text,
    @counter+1, 1)) + right(@text, (@length - @counter) - 1)
                set @text    = @textnew
            set @counter = @counter + 1
        return replace(replace(replace(@text,' ','<>'),'><',''),'<>',' ')
