How to change case in Excel

Excel users frequently want to change case in one or more columns. For example to turn:

Excel split first last


Excel split column

You can do this in Excel using the LOWER(), UPPER() and PROPER() Excel functions. But it is fairly onerous and error prone, especially if you have a lot of rows and columns to update. You also lose the data that was there before.

However it is very easy to change case in Easy Data Transform:

  1. Install Easy Data Transform on your PC or Mac, if you haven’t done so already. It will only take a minute. There is a fully fuctional free trial and you don’t have to give us your email or sign up to anything.

  3. Drag the Excel spreadsheet whose columns you wish to change case onto Easy Data Transform. A pink input item will be added.
  4. Ensuring the pink input item is selected, click the Case button in the left pane.

When you are happy with the results output the result into a new Excel spreadsheet or CSV file.
