And incase if the case in A1 is in mixed Format the

One quick and dirty solution for small amount of data.
paste the fields in word and use shift+F3 and paste back into excel
The above UPPER() and LOWER() functions must be used in a different column than where the present values are. If you want to quickly convert a cell or a group of cells with single combo key strokes within the same cell as in word (shift+F3) the above is the solution.
This can be done in VBA as follows:
Open a NEW workbook
Copy this macro to the clipboard
If ActiveCell.Value = LCase(ActiveCell) Then
ActiveCell.Value = UCase(ActiveCell)
ElseIf ActiveCell.Value = UCase(ActiveCell) Then
ActiveCell.Value = _
ElseIf ActiveCell.Value = Application.WorksheetFunction _
ActiveCell.Value = LCase(ActiveCell)
Press ALT + F11
Insert > Module
Paste the macro into the Module area to the right.
Close back to Excel
Go to Tools > Macro > Macros
Highlight the macro ‘Set_Case’, if it is not already highlighted.
Select and enter a letter to be used as a keyboard shortcut. (Maybe… ‘c’ for case?)
Close back to Excel
File > Save As
Name the workbook Adjust Case
Reopen the Adjust Case workbook.
Open any other workbook you wish.
Click on any cell with text on any sheet in that workbook.
Press Ctrl + c (or whatever letter you chose).
Each time you enter this keyboard shortcut, the case will cycle through Proper, Upper, and Lower in a closed loop.
Note: You can make Excel automatically open Adjust Case.xls on startup by copying it the the XLStart folder. For Excel 2003, you would copy it to this location:
C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOFFICE11XLStart
To make it truly seamless, you could copy a blank Book1 workbook into the XLStart folder also. Then, when you open Excel, the blank Book1 workbook would be the active workbook and Adjust Case would be open in the background. This would simulate a normal opening of Excel.
^ good grief! ^
go to new cell
don’t poop on it!
type =upper(# of cell u want) upper cased
type=lower(# OF CELL U WANT) lower cased
again-dont poop on it!
good luck! or another short cut f3
This is useful. Thank you.
