How to filter cells with case sensitive in Excel?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-28
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.

Filter text with case sensitive by Filter and formulas

How do you filter only the unique text with case sensitive in Excel, says only uppercases of "TEXT TOOLS"? We will follow the example we talk above, and show you the detailed guidance to filter with case sensitive.

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

This formula will identify whether the text string in Cell B2 are uppercase or not, and return True only if the text string is uppercase.

Step 2: Select the Column C, and click the Home >> Fill >> Down to copy the formula to the whole column.

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

Step 4: Click the Filter button under the Data tab.

Step 5: Click the arrow button besides the title of Column B. Uncheck Select All, and only check the TEXT TOOLS in the filter box. Then click OK.

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:

Notes:

1. The formula of =AND(B2<>"",SUMPRODUCT(--(EXACT(B2,$B$1:$B$14)))>1) can help you filter only the records with Title Cases.

2. The formula of =EXACT(B2,LOWER(B2)) can help you filter only the records with lowercases.
