    There is some lisps out there underline and UPPER & lowercase just pick text.

    Code:
    ; convert text to uppercase
    (defun c:ucase (/ t2 tv tvu tv1 t1)
    (setvar "cmdecho" 0)
       (setq t2 (entsel "\nPick text:"))
       (setq t2 ( car t2))
       (setq t2 (entget t2))
       (setq tv (assoc 1 t2))
       (setq tvu (cdr tv))
       (setq tvu (strcase tvu))
       (setq tv1 (cons (car tv) tvu))
       (setq t1 (subst tv1 tv t2))
       (entmod t1)
    (setvar "cmdecho" 1)
    )
    (c:ucase)

    Hi BIGAL, your method seems to be much complicated. Am a newbie, though i will try it out. Danallis method was simpler and really worked for me.
    Thank you fr your help. I appreciate very much

    Welcome to CADTutor bejant.
    Thanks, I didn't know that.
