Excel question

Is it possible to change the first letter of words to uppercase without changing the letter after an apostrophy as well, as using ‘=proper’ does.
Or is there a way of changing letters after an apostrophy to lowercase.

Try find and replace from the Edit menu

you have to be quite specific about what to change but it will get the job done

With a User Defined Function: Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor, select Module from the Insert menu and paste into the white space on the right

Function VoG(r As Range) As String
VoG = StrConv(r, vbProperCase)
End Function

Press ALT + F11 to return your sheet then use the formula


to convert the text in A1.
