  1. Does this option exist in Excel 2010? How to find it? I want to change to uppercase some columns of data. (I know about =upper() function, but i want something just to change it insude column, without creating new column.

  2. Select desired text, copy/paste to blank word 2007 page, ctrl-A, font button, change font, uppercase, ctrl-c, go back to excel sheet and ctrl-v to paste it back in.

    Sounds lame, but this is quicker than making column, entering formula, pasting down, copy/pasting value, and removing columns in Excel. (ctrl-keystrokes, one button, and one window ruondtrip makes it fewer kinds of actions and slightly more efficient I think.) Maybe they’ll unveil the excel upper case button in Windows Vista2 and some more real upgrades in Windows 8. šŸ™‚

    Some programmerz might chime in here with making a button and a clever macro and such.
