I have much data to check

I need to know if  col (A) is in all caps.
I need to know if co (B) is in all lower case.

If I make a mistake my boss says he will apply "capital punishment"

thx

I came across this code on Mr Excel, which would do what you want with any selected range

Public Sub Format_Upcase()
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False 'speed up with large selections
 Application.Calculation = xlManual

 For Each xCell In Selection
 If UCase(xCell.Text) <> xCell.Text Then xCell.Value = UCase(xCell.Text)
 Next

 Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic
 Application.ScreenUpdating = True
 End Sub

 Just highlight the cells that must be in upper case and and run the macro
If you want to put things into lower case then use this macro instead

Public Sub Format_Locase()
 Application.ScreenUpdating = False 'speed up with large selections
 Application.Calculation = xlManual

 For Each xCell In Selection
 If LCase(xCell.Text) <> xCell.Text Then xCell.Value = LCase(xCell.Text)
 Next

 Application.Calculation = xlAutomatic
 Application.ScreenUpdating = True
 End Sub

The following formula returns TRUE if A2 contains all upper case:

=NOT(ISERROR(FIND(UPPER(A2),A2)))

For all lower case:

=NOT(ISERROR(FIND(LOWER(A2),A2)))

Formulawise you could use EXACT function, i.e. UPPER CASE in A2

=EXACT(A2,UPPER(A2))

and for B2 in lower case

=EXACT(B2,LOWER(B2))
