I've got a 96000 line spreadsheet with individual words or abbreviations in each cell of the first column. I need to sort it with numbers first, then Capitalized words, then lowercase words. The numbers aren't an issue but sorting the Caps first then lower case without getting words that have a cap in the middle is frying my tiny brain. Originally I dug around here and found a search for caps that returned a True/False then sorted the columns on the result. =MIN(--EXACT(Dict3,LOWER(Dict3)))=0 Then I found that I had abbreviations in the list like cGy and eV or cGMB that incorrectly showed up as true but weren't. Now I need a modification or a better answer. I tried a fw dozen things but obviously I'm barking up the wrong functions.
For Each cel In Range("E6:AI15").Cells If IsError(cel.Value) Then Else Select Case UCase(cel.Value) Case "H" cel.Font.ColorIndex = 0 cel.Interior.ColorIndex = 3 Case "S" cel.Font.ColorIndex = 0 cel.Interior.ColorIndex = 10
but I want the cells to accept both upper and lower case values and format the cells accordingly ie. H or h, S or s
I have looked in conditional formatting, but do not see a way to change lower case to all caps. Is there a way to do this so that when someone types in a cell it returns all caps instead of leaving it in lower case?
=upper("venkat") returns VENKAT =upper(a1) returns the text in A1 in upper case
similary lower proper will turn the first letter into uppercase
is this what you want;.

I have a file with about 30-40 macros in it. In a file with nothing in it, whenever I type the word " range" xl automatically changes it to title case. But I noticed recently everywhere the term 'range' occurs in my macros it is lower case.
I am trying to set up a worksheet that shows shifts using a Capital "D" and a lower case "d" (one is for a 12 hour shift, the other for only 6 hours). Is there any way to set up a Countif formula that makes the distinction?
I am using the Find fuction to look for values in cells that contain text in both lower and upper case. I am comparing the values that I have stored in a lookup table. I am running into trouble when the lookup table doesn't match the text cells....
I would like to format a row of cells so that when a word is entered into the cell it automatically becomes a capital.
I need the word to be capitalized so that I can use it in a custom function. The function uses the word from this cell and goes through a bunch of cases in determing how to classify the string.
I think more than one solution is possible and I would greatly appreciate some feed back, I've tried looking into turning all the letters of a string in my VBA code to capitals, or a way to format the cells, so that the string is already capitalized when entered into the VBA code, but I'm still a novice at VBA and unsure on how certain commands work.
here is a sample of my vba code.
Function WeightI(Shape As String, sDim As String, dLenFt As Double) As Double Const pi As Double = 3.14159265358979 Const Ft2In As Double = 12 Const dDen As Double = 0.2835 ' density of steel, pounds per cubic inch
I'm using Excel 2010. When I type 'true' or 'false' in any cell, Excel automatically changes to CAPITAL and Align Centre. I have to use the function 'lower' to change to lower case and manually to align to the left.
I am trying to detete rows that have several specific values, upper and lower case, (A-H) in any of several columns (B through H). I can delete upper and lower case "D"s in column B, but I'm having difficulty stringing together several variations and getting at the "D"s that are midstream (such as: ADeC), I tried ("*D*") to no avail.
With . Cells(Lrow, "B") If Not IsError(.Value) Then '**** If LCase(.Value) = LCase("D") Then .EntireRow.Delete
I want to sort on number of words, i.e. if a cell contains 1 or 2 words etc, with the cells containing 1 word coming first then cells containing 2 words. Also, if possible, first the cells with fewer characters.
