Excel users frequently want to change case in one or more columns. For example to turn:
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 or lots of worksheets to update. You also lose the data that was there before.
However it is very easy to change case in Easy Data Transform:
A blue transform item is added and selected.
In the Right pane select the column(s) you wish to change and the desired case to change to in Change case to.
You can now see that the case has been changed in the selected columns. No need to ‘run’ anything.
For more information on Case options see the Case documentation.
When you are satisfied with the results you can output the transformed data to a new file in a range of file formats. Ensuring that the blue transform item is selected, click the To File button at the bottom of the Left pane to create a new output file (you might have to scroll down to see the button).
If you need to change case in lots of Excel sheets you can do it in a single operation using the batch processing feature.
Easy Data Transform allows you to combine multiple transforms, such as Case, to quickly and easily create complex data transformations. For example, you can also combine columns, split columns and merge spreadsheets. Easy Data Transform can input and output in multiple formats, and process millions of rows.
