Can you format a cell or otherwise force it to display only upper case characters? Entry will be mixed alpha and numeric. I can't figure a way to use UPPER function since it references a cell and the entry will only be in the cell I want to format as upper. I know, there's always VB.

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.

FYI,

the data validation route would be to validate on:

=EXACT(UPPER(A1),A1)

Thanks, Paddy. I would never have gotten that one by myself.
