# How to Check If a Cell is Uppercase, Lowercases or Capitalize in Excel

This post will guide you how to check if a cell is uppercase in Excel 2013/2016. How do I identify all letters in cells are lowercases or capitalize in Excel. How to change letters to uppercase, lowercases or capitalize first letter for all words in cells in Excel.

## 1. Check If All Letters are Uppercase

If you want to check if all letters in cells are uppercase, you can use a formula based on the EXACT function and the UPPER function. Like this:

``=EXACT(B1,UPPER(B1))``

Type this formula into a blank cell and press Enter key to apply this formula. If All letters are uppercases, and it returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE. Then drag the AutoFill Handle down to other cells to apply this formula.

Let’ see how this formula works:

The UPPER function will convert all letters to uppercase. And then pass the result to EXACT function as its second argument. And the EXACT function will compare if two values are equal. If equal, returns TRUE. Otherwise, returns FALSE.

## 2. Check If All Letters are Uppercase Using VBA Code

“Now, let’s explore an alternative method to check if all letters are uppercase using VBA code. This dynamic approach offers more flexibility and control over the evaluation process.”

Press ‘Alt + F11‘ to open the Visual Basic for Applications editor.

Right-click on the project in the editor, select ‘Insert,’ and choose ‘Module‘ to add a new module.

Copy and paste the following VBA code into the module:

``````Function AreAllUppercase(cellValue As String) As Boolean

AreAllUppercase = UCase(cellValue) = cellValue

End Function``````

Go back to your Excel workbook and use the custom function:

``=AreAllUppercase(A1)``

The result will be TRUE if all letters are uppercase and FALSE otherwise.

The VBA code provides a flexible and reusable function to check if all letters in a given text are in uppercase.

## 3. Check If All Letters are Lowercase

If you need to identify all characters in cells are lowercase, you can use a formula based on the LOWER function and the EXACT function. Like this:

``=EXACT(B1,LOWER(B1))``

Type this formula into cell C1, and press Enter key to apply this formula. If all letters are lowercases, and it returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE. Then drag the AutoFill Handle down to other cells to apply this formula.

The LOWER function converts all letters to lowercase.

## 4. Check If All Letters are Lowercase Using VBA Code

Next, let’s consider an alternative method to check if all letters are lowercase using VBA code. This dynamic approach offers increased flexibility and control over the evaluation process.”

Press ‘Alt + F11‘ to open the Visual Basic for Applications editor.

Right-click on the project in the editor, select ‘Insert,’ and choose ‘Module‘ to add a new module.

Copy and paste the following VBA code into the module:

``````Function AreAllLowercase(cellValue As String) As Boolean

AreAllLowercase = LCase(cellValue) = cellValue

End Function``````

Go back to your Excel workbook and use the custom function:

``=AreAllLowercase(A1)``

The result will be TRUE if all letters are lowercase and FALSE otherwise.

The VBA code provides a flexible and reusable function to check if all letters in a given text are in lowercase.

## 5. Check If the First Letters are capitalized

If you want to check if the first character in each word is capitalized, you can use a formula based on the EXACT function and the PROPER function. Like this:

``=EXACT(B1,PROPER(B1))``

Type this formula into cell C1, and press Enter key to apply this formula. If all the first letters are capitalized, and it returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE. Then drag the AutoFill Handle down to other cells to apply this formula.

The PROPER function will capitalize the first letter in each word in Cell.

## 6. Check If the First Letters are Capitalized Using VBA Code

Lastly, let’s explore an alternative method to check if the first letters are capitalized using VBA code. This dynamic approach offers more versatility and control over the evaluation process.”

Press ‘Alt + F11‘ to open the Visual Basic for Applications editor.

Right-click on the project in the editor, select ‘Insert,’ and choose ‘Module’ to add a new module.

Copy and paste the following VBA code into the module:

``````Function AreFirstLettersCapitalized(cellValue As String) As Boolean

AreFirstLettersCapitalized = StrConv(Left(cellValue, 1), vbProperCase) & Mid(cellValue, 2) = cellValue

End Function``````

Go back to your Excel workbook and use the custom function:

`` =AreFirstLettersCapitalized(A1)``

The result will be TRUE if the first letters are capitalized and FALSE otherwise.

The VBA code provides a flexible and reusable function to check if the first letters in a given text are capitalized.

## 7. Video: Check If a Cell is Uppercase, Lowercases or Capitalize

This Excel video tutorial where we’ll explore advanced techniques to analyze and manipulate text. we’re focusing on three distinct scenarios: checking if all letters are uppercase, checking if all letters are lowercase, and checking if the first letters are capitalized. For each scenario, we’ll delve into two methods – one utilizing Excel formulas and the other harnessing the power of VBA code.
