How to filter cells with case sensitive in Excel?

By default, Microsoft Excel's Filter command does not support case sensitive. For example, when you filter the uppercase of "TEXT TOOLS" in a column, it will filter all uppercases of "TEXT TOOLS", title cases of "Text Tools", and lowercases of "text tools" together.

Step 1: In a blank column, says Column C, enter the formula of =EXACT(B2,UPPER(B2)), and press the Enter key.

Step 3: Select the Column B and Column C together.

Step 6: Click the arrow button besides the title of Column C; uncheck the Select All, and only check the TRUE in the filter box. Click OK.

Now it filters the records twice, and finally filters the unique records with case sensitive, see the following screen shot:
