You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show how to capitalize the first letters of words in Microsoft Excel.

## Steps

1. 1
In this video, there is a name, "mike holmes", written in the "A1" cell
.
2. 2
Click the next cell, "B1"
.
3. 3
Type the "=proper(A1)"
.
Alternatively, you can click the "A1" cell instead of typing it. Now, you'll see that Excel will have capitalized the name. In cell "B1", "Mike Holmes" appears with the first letters capitalized.

That was how to capitalize just the first letter of each word in a cell using the Microsoft Excel "PROPER" function. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the space below. Thanks for watching VisiHow!

### 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.
