Back to all functions

This lesson will go through the three functions that change the capitalization of a string of text, LOWER, UPPER and PROPER. Each function has only one argument: The cell containing the text we want to convert.
If we want a text to be all lower-case letters, we type Equals LOWER, and select the cell with the text… The same works with Upper if we want the text to be all capitalized…
If we replace UPPER with PROPER, the first letter of each word becomes upper-case, with the rest of the word being lower-case.
This can all be done by simply entering a text into the function itself, within quotation marks.
We have in this lesson looked at the different ways to use the functions UPPER, LOWER, and PROPER to change the capitalization of a string of text.
