    Hi, I'm using excel 2003 on a server. I have 200 rows of business contact info, including fields for name, address, email, company name, etc. All data is in all caps. I need to convert to Title Case. Is there a way to do this globally to the worksheet? Can I use the PROPER function to all fields at once?

    Thanks

    Go to the first free row, or better yet leave a few rows and then do this, will make it easier later, and enter proper(XX) Where XX is the top left cell you need to convert, Then just drag the cell by the box on the bottom right to encompace an area of equal height and width to the origional data. Then copy the data and paste as values in a new sheet, or over the old data, and all should be converted, if you need more detailed instructions just ask, but it should work.

    Yes, =PROPER() does this just fine. If you have more than one column (say, A, B, C) and you want to do it all at once (and combine them) you can also do something like =PROPER(A1&" "&B1&" "&C1)
