is there a way to convert an excel table to be all caps?

I really do not feel like retyping all these tables again.

Thanks in advance.

UPPER - Converts text to uppercase.

Syntax
UPPER(text)

Text is the text you want converted to uppercase. Text can be a reference or text string.

Example

The example may be easier to understand if you copy it to a blank worksheet.

1. Create a blank workbook or worksheet.
2. Select the area you want changed. Do not select the row or column headers.
3. Press CTRL+C.
4. In the worksheet, select cell A1, and press CTRL+V.
5. To switch between viewing the results and viewing the formulas that return the results, press CTRL+` (grave accent), or on the Tools menu, point to Formula Auditing, and then click Formula Auditing Mode.
A
1 Data
2 total
3 yield

Formula Description (Result)
=UPPER(A2) Upper case of first string (TOTAL)
=UPPER(A3) Upper case of second string (YIELD)

(Hi maxflia10)

Just another option, a very straightforward one if you have MS Word.

Copy the table and paste it into a blank Word doc.

Select the table & use Word's own Format -- Change Case.

Copy the table again and Paste Special in XL as plain text, over the original table.

Rgds,
Andy

Thanks everyone for responding.

Went with the very basic route (XL Guru's) suggestion.

I also downloaded asap-utilities but have not installed yet since it's the works computer and they got some policies on apps installed.

Thanks again everyone.
