This article contains three sample Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macros (Sub procedures) that you can use to change the letters in a text string to all uppercase, all lowercase, or title case (the first letter in each word is capitalized). These actions are similar to the Excel functions, =UPPER(), =LOWER(), and =PROPER().
