Probably a very stupid question, but for some reason when I now record macros the little icon pop-up showing the Record and Stop button has disappeared. How do I get it back? I have cheated by putting in a Visual Basic toolbar on the main menu which gets round the problem at the moment, but it would be nice to get the original back.

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

It loses it's context sensitivity if you close it with the X while recording. To get it back, record a macro and while recording show it by right clicking any Toolbar and choosing Stop Recording. Click the Stop button to close it.
