Text  ›  6. Start Each Word With Uppercase

This utility will start each word in the selected cells with a capital.
All other characters will be converted to lowercase.
For example the text 'new york' is changed to 'New York'.

You can use this as a quick alternative for Excel's =PROPER() function. There is however a difference. This utility only converts the first letter of every word (the first word and everything after a space) to uppercase. But Excel's =PROPER() also capitalizes all letters in the text that follow any character other than a letter.

This utility can be useful with for example city names.
