Is there a way to set a formula so all text in the column or sheet is upper case even if someone enters it on a form in lower or title case?


  • Hello,

    If you are looking to convert user entries to uppercase in the existing cell, there isn't a way to do this. 

    The UPPER() function can convert text from one cell to all uppercase. https://help.smartsheet.com/function/upper.


  • Tried working around this using a helper column with =UPPER([column name]@row) on automation workflows... but when triggered it ads a single ' at the start of the formula...

    Hi @SaulB

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to add formulas with the change cell action, but it's an excellent idea!

    Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment.

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Add the formula as a Column Formula.

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
