Posted by Ron on February 07, 2002 4:46 PM

Can someone help me with a formula to convert a column of 5000+ names from UPPER to LOWER case.....

It is a list of Real Office anmes so hopefullly leaving the first letter of each Capitalized....

Is that possible?

Thank you!!!

To have only the first letter capitalized use proper()

Lets say the data is in A1:A5000

Then in some col lets say B put in B1 = Proper(A1)
Then fill this down all the rows.

Copy this data and paste special|Values it over the old data in A1:A5000
