-lower()- and -upper()- are functions, not commands. Dopey example:

sysuse auto
gen lmake = lower(make)
gen umake = upper(make)
edit *make

Start with -help functions-.

Is there a way to force them all into upper or lower case? I've tried the "lower" command but it was not recognized. I'm using version 11.
