Someone sent me a workbook with about 15 sheets, different info on each sheet. All sheets are formatted wrong and book prints on 127 sheets instead of 15.

Is there a way for me to format the first sheet and then copy the format to all the other sheets in the workbook while keeping the info intact on the different sheets?

Thanks.

How to change case of text in Excel?
Use =UPPER() for upper case, =LOWER() for lower case, and =PROPER() for proper case. PROPER won't capitalize second c in Mccartney

If I'm remembering correctly, try selecting all of the sheets, and apply the formatting. It should affect all of the selected sheets.

you could also try just selecting all the info on the first sheet and then paste it into the other sheets with "format only"
