    I have vaidated some cells so that only certain letters can be entered (so far so good) but I want these to be capitals only so I need the end user to be prompted to this effect. In the cutom formula box I have tried =EXACT(UPPER($A$27:$A$33),$A$27:$A$33) where $A$27:$A$33 contains the only letters that can be entered into the cell - but it does not work HELP.

    Try to upper the already validated entry. That is, if the value must be NEW YORK and the user enters New York, accept that entry and upper it afterwards.

    =IF(validation-expression,UPPER(A1),"")

    where A1 is the cell in which you do the validation.

    Or, extend your validation expression with:

    =AND(expression-you-currently-use,EXACT(UPPER(A1),A1))
