    Default Changing Text Format

     
    I am working with a spreadsheet which contains employee names and addresses. Everything was initially entered in Capital letters. I would like the easiest way to reformat my cells so that the text has only the first letter of each word capitalized.

    I am aware of the PROPER function but am not using it correctly. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    If the data were in cell A1, then in the next column over, simply enter
    =Proper(A1)

    You can then do a Cut / Paste Special Values only if you want to make those formulas values and delete the original data.
