    This a great tutorial, and you got the desired result, but you are actually converting to Proper case rather than "Title case".
    This Sentence Is Written In Proper Case.
    This Sentence is Written in Title Case.
    This sentence is written in sentence case.
    In Title case, the first word, proper nouns, etc are capitalised; the "little" words are not. If you try your tutorial with the text in this comment, you'll see even the "little" words become capitalised.
    I've been Googling how to do Title case in Excel, but everyone suggests using =PROPER(), which is not the right solution.

    Try turning it into a function as follows. Save in personal app file and then you can use in all workbooks

    Public Function SENTENCECASE(Sen As String)
    'Sen is the range selected in the brackets of the function as the input cell
    On Error Resume Next

    xValue = Sen
    xStart = True
    For i = 1 To VBA.Len(xValue)
    ch = Mid(xValue, i, 1)
    Select Case ch
    Case "."
    xStart = True
    Case "?"
    xStart = True
    Case "a" To "z"
    If xStart Then
    ch = UCase(ch)
    xStart = False
    End If
    Case "A" To "Z"
    If xStart Then
    xStart = False
    Else
    ch = LCase(ch)
    End If
    End Select
    Mid(xValue, i, 1) = ch
    Next

    SENTENCECASE = xValue
    End Function
