This will work, but PROPER is much cleaner and faster:

=upper(LEFT(C3109,1)) & lower(mid(C3109,2,13))

It depends what's in C3109. If the first 14 characters is two words, PROPER won't work. ;)

the first char being capitalized and the rest lower case

That's not necessarily the same as Proper Case (it's what Word would call Sentence case):

"Two words"
rather than:
"Two Words"
