Question: In Microsoft Excel 2003/XP/2000/97, how do I convert an entire spreadsheet into uppercase?
Answer: This can be done with a macro.
Let's look at an example.
Download Excel spreadsheet (as demonstrated below)
In our spreadsheet, we have two sheets called Sheet1 and Sheet2.
We've placed a button on Sheet1 that when clicked will move through each sheet in the spreadsheet updating each value to uppercase. This macro will then leave you positioned on the last sheet in the spreadsheet.
This is what your spreadsheet will look like after you've run the macro:
You'll now be positioned on Sheet2 and all of the values should now appear in uppercase.
To view the macro, press Alt-F11 and double-click on the module called Module1 in the left window.
This macro code looks like this:
Sub ConvertToUppercase() Dim ws As Object Dim LCell As Range 'Turn off screen updating to increase performance Application.ScreenUpdating = False Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual 'Move through each sheet in your spreadsheet For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Sheets On Error Resume Next ws.Activate 'Convert all constants and text values to proper case For Each LCell In Cells.SpecialCells(xlConstants, xlTextValues) LCell.Formula = UCase(LCell.Formula) Next Next ws 'Turn screen updating back on Application.Calculation = xlCalculationAutomatic Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub
