Use PROPER to capitalize the first letter in each word of a string of text.
SELECT [wctString].[wct].[PROPER] (
   <@Text, nvarchar(max),>)
is the text value to be evaluated. The @Text argument can be of data types that are implicitly convertible to nvarchar or ntext.
Return Types
·         PROPER capitalizes the first letter in a text string and any other letters in text that follow any character other than a letter.
·         PROPER converts all other letters to lowercase letters.
·         PROPER only capitalizes [a-z].
select wct.PROPER('now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country')
