Questions and Answers

Capitalize the first letter of each word in a column?

How can I capitalize the first letter of each word in a cell, for the whole column all at once, instead of working on each cell individually.?. I have data in a whole column and I need to capitalize the first letter of each word in several rows in that column all at once.??. or. is it possible to format particular cells ( or many cells) to capitalize the first letter of any words typed into those cells.??? I am unable to bulk-convert a whole column of several rows all at once - to capitalize the first letter of all words in every row in a particular column. I have tried: =Proper (A1 or B2) etc. only one at a time. This does not work for =Proper(A2:A35). I think it was caused by: Maybe there is a more precise formula for doing this.
