Capitalizing The First Letter Of Every Word In A Cell, Without Changing Anything Else

Nov 23, 2008

What I need to do is fairly simple to explain:

I want to have the first letter of every word in a cell to be capitalized, but the rest of each word must remain as is.

Ie: If I have "My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew" in a cell, I want to be able to use a function, let's say:

=CapFix("My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew")

and the output should be:

My AMD CPU Still Has Some Pew-pew

I've tried using:

=PROPER("My AMD CPU still has some pew-pew")

But the output is:

My Amd Cpu Still Has Some Pew-pew

Which is incorrect (capitalization in the rest of the words "AMD" and "CPU" is lost). Does anybody here know what can be done to solve this problem, or have any info about what I can use to solve it? I have not been able to find any built-in Excel function to solve this, nor ASAP Utilities and I can add VBA code and macros, I just don't know how to manipulate the strings correctly or do the loops, etc that I think will be necessary to solve this.

If anyone could help, it would be much appreciated. I've not seen a single site where a similar problem has been posted. Even if you can't give me a full solution, but can point me in any direction that would be useful, I'd be really grateful.

Capitalizing Last Character In String?

Feb 9, 2012

I have a web query that returns a city and state, but the last character of the state is lower case. I need VBA code to change the last char to upper case. Here is what I have so far:

Code:
tmp = Cells(4, 1).Value
Mid(tmp, Len(tmp), 1) = UCase(Right(tmp, 1))
Cells(4, 1).Value = tmp

Is there any easier way to do this without 3 lines of code?

How To Find Duplicated String Before A Character That Contains Specific Word

May 16, 2014

In column A, I have the following lines:

2014-05-15 02:08:43 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:31:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 02:37:20 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 03:07:19 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:01:37 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)
2014-05-15 15:04:46 @Centre INFO - CHANGE WORLD (Original World to Destination World)

I would like to use conditional formatting to highlight cells which have the same first 16 characters (yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm) before the "@" AND that contains the words "CHANGE WORLD". Therefore, I'm looking for a formula I could include in the conditional formatting so I can easily find the "CHANGE WORLD" that occurred at the same time (minus the seconds, they may vary slightly).

Change Current Cell Value If Number String NOT Letter String?

Apr 7, 2014

In sheet1 I have a simple database consisting of 5 columns of data

Column B : payroll number ie 123456
Column C : shift times ie 1245-2124
Column D : job title ie floor
Column E : comments ie A/L or 0600-1500

what I would like is some code that will go down Column E and if a 'time string' ie 1300-2130 is found then copy this string and paste into corresponding value in column C. If a text string is found ie A/L or Sick or anything like this then ignore and move onto next cell, loop this until all cells in column E have been checked.

If Specific Row Contains A Word Then Clear Specific Content In Corresponding Column

Jun 18, 2014

I have a row (will always be row 3) where each cell contains a day of the week, the days repeats for a year or so, making the row almost 400 cells.

Like this,
Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - and so on...

Though, A3 doesn't have to be "Mo" because the days in this case can change (A3 can start with "Tu"), hence I think I need a macro.

So if this row contains a weekend, "Sa or "Su" I want all the cells in the column beneath that which contains a specific value to be cleared.

Example, if "Sa" or "Su" has 3 values in the columns under them, all the values that contain "X" or "Y" has to be cleared.

Like this:
Rows (1,2,3...,)
1----
2----
3 Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su - .. and so on..
4 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- B --- Y
5 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- X --- X
6 A --- B --- X --- Y - --X --- Y --- C

After the macro it should be:

1----
2----
3 Mo - Tu - We - Th - Fr - Sa - Su
4 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- B ---
5 A --- B --- X --- Y --- X --- ---
6 A --- B --- X --- Y - --X --- --- C

Notice the two examples in the excel file.

How To Delete Specific Signs Or Letter At The END Of A Column

I need a macro, which removes spaces, symbols, letters, numbers or combination of them from the end of all cells in a column. The symbols should be chosen before the macro starts its work.

For example:

After running the macro the end of the cells should be cleaned from chosen symbols, spaces or signes. (in our example if a cell ends with sign ";" then these signes should be deleted).

Find And Replace A Specific Letter/number Combination

Jul 9, 2008

I have a column of references I wish to standardize. Contained within a general text description there is also an order-specific reference number, which is not relevant for my purposes. I wish to find all of these numbers and replace them with nothing (i.e. retain the rest of the description).

The reference numbers are always in the format "P#####/##". Unfortunately these references are in the middle of the text field, not at the start or end, so I can't use a LEFT or RIGHT formula to delete them.

Once these reference numbers have been deleted I will then be able to filter for unique records only. When I do this at the moment the filtering has no effect due to these specific reference numbers.
