Is there any way of formating a cell to change the case of a letter from lower to upper. without using a macro or a fromula like the =upper(). If it could be done I think it would be done in custom of format cell
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Hi David,

I don't know of any way to do this with custom formats, etc., but you could make a cell's contents always display in upper case by assigning that cell a font that has no lower case characters. There are no such fonts in the standard Windows or Office load, but many other applications install such fonts (if you check you may find that you already have one or two), and there are also many available for free download on the 'net.
