How to Change Case in Excel

Text Toolkit for Excel is really good at trimming data imported from an external source. One of other handy features it has is the ability to change case in Excel 2016 - 2007.

Before you start

We care about your data. The add-in will back up your file if you select the corresponding option.

How to change case of cell values

To run the tool, click the Change Case icon that you'll find in the Text group on the Ablebits Data tab in Excel:
The Change Case tool on Excel's ribbon.
You will see the Change Case pane:
Lower, upper, proper, or sentence case.

  1. Select the range in Excel where you need to convert case.
  2. If you need to get the whole table selected, click the Expand selection icon.
  3. If you choose UPPER CASE, all the words within the selected cells will take upper case.
  4. Select lower case to turn all cell values to lowercase.
  5. Pick Proper Case to make the first letter of each word within a cell capital and all other letters lowercase.
    Note. If there are acronyms in your cells, only the first letter of the abbreviation will keep upper case.
  6. Make the first character in each sentence capital with the Sentence case option.
    Tip. You can run any of these options right away by clicking the down arrow below the add-in's icon and picking the necessary option from the drop-down menu:
    Change case directly from the Excel ribbon.
  7. As you can't undo changes made by add-ins in Excel, we recommend choosing to Back up the worksheet.

Click the Change case button to apply changes to the selected range.
