Default is it possibe to capitalize every letter after a "colon space"

i have a script given to me.
all the dialog was in all caps.
i used shift f3 to change it to lower case and then shift f3 again to change it to capitalize the first letter of every sentence....

problem is all the dialog is in this format

Dick: your name, boy?
Ainsworth: ainsworth, sirů


as you can see it doesn't recognize the ": " before the sentence as the start of a sentence, so there for it doesn't capitalize. is there a way to capitalize ever letter that follows a colon space ": "


thanks in advance for any help....

Hi angeltread,

Try the following macro:
Code:
Sub Capitalize()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim oRng As Range, fRng As Range
With Selection
  Set oRng = .Range
  With .Find
    .ClearFormatting
    .MatchWildcards = True
    .Wrap = wdFindContinue
    .Forward = True
    .Text = ": [a-z]"
    Do While .Execute = True
      Set fRng = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=Selection.Start, End:=Selection.End)
      With fRng
        .Text = UCase(.Text)
        .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
      End With
    Loop
  End With
End With
oRng.Select
Set fRng = Nothing: Set oRng = Nothing
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

thanks so much dude. i really want to try this... unfortunatly i cant figure out how to create and run this macro. i get the message that i do not have macros enabled. so i then enable macros by following the instructions... but, i still receive the same message every time. and every time i go and check the settings... and it says that macros are enabled. so i dont know whats up with that. any help there?

thanks so much for your time btw.
