Forcing a value's case

My question is regarding a case insensitive query. Is there a way (other than triggers) to force a value that goes into a field to be all in one case -- either UPPER or LOWER? The database is in Oracle.

A similar way is to use a CHECK constraint on the column for UPPER(column).
