    I have written a spreadsheet where the letters A, C, E, F, S and U are entered into cells. Using Validation I have made it so that only these letters can be entered (so far so good). Is there a way to make Excel auto correct if the end user enters any of the above letters in lower case to upper case. I have tried adding entries into Auto Correct but this seems to have a global effect. I need it to be worksheet specific or at the very least work on only that 1 particular workbook.

    You could upper the validated input:

    =UPPER(A1)

    where A1 houses the validated entry.

    Why not have your data validation enforce upper case...

    =EXACT(UPPER(A1),A1)
