    In this article, you will learn the formula to change text to lower case and replace space by a dash.

    This can be useful when importing CSV file to a CMS like Joomla where articles titles need their respective aliases to be in lower case.

    • Insert the text you wish to manipulate in the first cell. In our example, I named my first column "Title"

    • Select the adjacent cell (B2) and type the following formula in the second or third cell of your Exel sheet:

      =LOWER(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","-"))

      The LOWER function change the text to lower case and the SUBSTITUTE function change the space to a dash. You may of course change it to any character of your choice. Copy down and you are done.

      Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
      When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine
      but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
      I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, excellent blog!
