How to identify uppercase, lowercases, and proper cases in Excel?

Sometimes there may be many uppercases, lowercase, or proper cases mixing in a range. Normally it is not easy to identify the cells with uppercase, lowercase, or proper cases by eyes quickly. And here we will introduce some easy ways to identify cells with uppercase, lowercase, and proper case quickly.

You can identify all cells with uppercases in a selection with following steps:

1. In a blank cell, says Cell C1, enter the formula of =EXACT(B1,UPPER(B1)), and press the Enter key.

doc-identify-uppercase2

This formula will identify whether the text in Cell B1 is uppercase or not. If the text in Cell B1 is uppercase, it will returns "TRUE"; if the text in Cell B1 is not uppercase, it will returns "FALSE".

2. Select the Range of C1:C20, and click the Home > Fill > Down to copy the formula to each cell. Now you can identify the uppercase in Column B according to the values in Column C easily.

You can identity all cells with lowercase in selection with following steps:

1. In a blank cell, says Cell C1, enter the formula of =EXACT(B1,LOWER(B1)), and press the Enter key.

doc-identify-uppercase4

2. Select the cell C1, and drag the fill handle over the range of cells that you want to contain this formula. Now it fills the Column C with the text of "TRUE" and "FALSE". The text of "TRUE" means the text in corresponding cell in Column B is lowercase, and the text of "FALSE" means it is not lowercase.

You can use this formula =EXACT(B1,PROPER(B1)) or =SUBSTITUTE(B1,PROPER(B1),"x")="x" to identify if the text in specific cell is proper case or not.

That will also return False if the original string (in B1) is not in the proper case, and True if it is. See screenshots:
