Change text case
If you happened to import an Excel worksheet where the text case is totally wrong, it doesn't mean you need to fix it manually. Cell Cleaner offers an easy possibility to convert case in the selected cells. Just choose to convert to upper or lower case, to capitalize each cell or use proper case in the range you select and click Run.

The Cell Cleaner add-in allows appending specific text to each cell of the selected range without having to type it manually. For example, you need to add @company.com to a column of several hundred user names. Just enter the text on the add-in pane and select the position for it in the cells. You can add text at the beginning or at the end of cells, before or after specific value, or append text by numerical order. Easily add suffixes and prefixes, numbers, strings, characters and symbols to the selected cells.

When copying numerical data to Excel, you can get it stored as text. You can also indicate that digits must be treated as text yourself if you use the apostrophe before them. Both options can cause problems with calculations or result in irregular sorting. With this nifty add-in you can quickly convert the digits back to number format and delete spaces and apostrophes at the same time.
If you have several characters here and there in your table that you need to replace with a different one, use the Convert characters option instead of repeating the same find-and-replace steps. It will substitute all the characters you enter individually.
Extra line breaks is another common problem that the add-in solves, you can simply replace them with spaces or any other characters. More about changing number format, replacing irrelevant characters and line breaks.
Split cells in Excel
When you're editing or reviewing an Excel worksheet, you may find a column of data to be split into two or more columns for sorting or extracting specific records. For example, cells with phone numbers may need to be split so that area codes are separated. Splitting text may seem a relatively simple task unless you have data next to the selected cells or you need to split cells to rows.
Cell Cleaner allows separating cell contents by character, mask, or by strings and lets you choose to place parts of data to columns or rows.

Wipe out all non-printing characters like line breaks, delete all digits, letters or special mathematical, currency and letter like symbols and punctuation marks. Or just use the custom characters box and enter whichever values you need to remove.
In addition, you can remove characters or substrings by position. Easily delete characters depending on where they are in the range. It's possible to erase the first or last characters, find characters by their order, or remove everything before or after the entered text.
