I'm using a script that was posted here on Web Applications: Is there a way to insert today’s date into a Google Docs?. I changed the way the date is formatted to: ddMMMyyyy but want 01JAN2015 - the month being capitalized.

Currently my script reads and outputs like 01jan2015.

How do I capitalize the date?

  • Where in my code would I insert the command .toUpperCase?

Change this

var date = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), "GMT", "ddMMMyyyy");

into this

var date = Utilities.formatDate(new Date(), "GMT", "ddMMMyyyy").toUpperCase();
