I guess I'm a little slow with this, but to convert a string from upper case to lower or vice versa I understand you have to go through the string and convert each individual letter but what would be the best way to go about that?

The best way is the way you come up with to solve the problem. There are several examples of iterating through a string in this thread. Any one of them will work or you can use a totally different scheme. Just make sure you understand the code.

No, and you are welcome. I don't do homework programs for my students or any other students on this forum.
