  1. So thankful for this, it wasn’t the exact solution I needed but it led me to the right place! My caps wasn’t checked but it was selected as being a heading. I changed it to body and the caps went away.

  2. Thank you!!
    I endured a frustrating few minutes…
    Surprised that 20 years of using word and I never faced this!! My new PC with new Ms Office must be the one to blame!!

  3. Thanks so much. Glad that there are people who love this. Any small problem becomes a huge thing to me.

  4. I have done what the instructions said, prior to coming to this site, and it still capitalizes. What I am attempting is to replace all the text in a cell from the word BLANK to the name of one of our employees. It still types his name in ALL CAPS despite the fact that I did not and that I unchecked the ALL CAPS box. What could be causing this?
