    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.
