    I have worksheets that have words all capitalized and I paste it to a new worksheet. The new worksheet must have the words all in lower case except for the first letter of the word. Changing the words to smaller case will be time-consuming and was wondering if there is a feature that can change all the words to smaller case all at once.

    Simply use the formula

    =LOWER(your cell here)

    for lower case, and

    =PROPER(your cell here)

    for sentence case

    Can you give me instructions for using the PROPER function? Also, there are 5 to 10 rows of capitalized words that I need to change to smaller case, not just one row. Thanks.

    In A1 enter: ar
    In B1 enter: =PROPER(A1)
