Hi Experts,
I need to change the first letter of every word in my spreadsheet to upper case, is there a formula I can use to do this with 1 action or do i have to manually change each letter to upper case?
This will need to apply to each word within a spreadsheet that has around 2000 line entries

Pls try on your selected cells

Sub DoUpperCase()
For Each cell In Selection
        cell.Value = WorksheetFunction.Proper(cell.Text)
Next
End Sub

Hi,

first select the cells you want to change then run the code, the code cannot change the result of formulas.

If you want to do this more than once then after the "Select the macro name" in ssaqibh's steps, click the 'Option…' button and place a letter like 'z' in the 'Ctrl+' box. From then on all you need to do to run the macro is to press Ctrl+z.
