Genbox was doing two things wrong with your example:
First, it wasn't recognizing "No." as an abbreviation. Instead, it was
considering this a sentence-terminating period, which prepared it to
capitalize the next word.
Second, it wasn't resetting this "capitalize the next word" setting when it
discovers that [DOC LOCATOR] is empty. The conditional portion was skipped
but the next word was still capitalized.
I have both of these problems corrected in 3.1.13. All capitalized words of
three characters or less that end in a period are now considered an
abbreviation. This means the automatic capitalization of the next word may
not happen in some cases where it should, but it is easy to capitalize the
data field value instead.
