Capitalise first letter of every word from mail address

Hi all,


I was wondering, does someone know how to do the following:

I have a message on my landing page, welcoming the user by name. 

Now, because of certain limitations, the user principal name in our org is the full mail address of a person. Two examples:


I got as far as to have these names be seperated from their domains, and have the "." removed. This results in:

john doe

frits von zarovich


Now I am wondering, is there a way to capitalise the first letters of every surname? I think I could be able to do it for the first letter of the first name, but I would like to be do this for all surnames as well.


This is the measure created to get so far:


User Principal Name =

Var User =



"Hello, " & User

 Thanks for all the possible help!

Super User
Super User

If you can do it in Power Query then there is a transform option under Format to Capitalise each word.

Do you know how to get that userprincipalname into PQ?

I think you'd need to get a table of all users imported, perhaps from AD, and then do a lookup of the translated name based on USERPRINCIPALNAME
