Default Capitalize first letter of each word

Does anybody know how to create a style in Word 2007 to capitalize first letter of each word
So That Each Word Starts With A Capital Letter
I know that you can do it manually through fonts but would like it to do it automatically in a style

Thanks for reading the post

Sorry, there is no way to include that in a style.

If you use Change Case Capitalize Each Word a lot and you want a
quicker way to apply it, do this:

- Copy this macro into your Normal.dotm template, using the
instructions at http://www.gmayor.com/installing_macro.htm.


Sub CapitalizeEachWord()
Selection.Paragraphs(1).Range.Case = wdTitleWord
End Sub


- Right-click the Quick Access Toolbar and choose Customize.

- In the Customize dialog, set the category to Macros. Click the name
of the CapitalizeEachWord macro and then click the Add button.

- (optional) Click the Modify button, choose an icon for the new
button, and edit the name that its tooltip will display.

- Click OK.

Now, when you've typed the heading or other text you want capitalized,
with the cursor still in that paragraph, click the button on the Quick
Access Toolbar.

Alternatively, you can use the Keyboard shortcuts: Customize button in
the Customize dialog to assign a shortcut for the macro.

You may get other suggestions so don't take this as the final word :-) but
my interpretation is that case structure is a Grammar issue, not a
formatting issue. I see no way for a Style to handle case conversions.

What I've done in the past is to record a simple macro that applies both the
Style as well as Title Case (or whatever case structure is called for). As I
said, there may be a more elegant solution, so stay tuned.

Just Select your Data and Press Shift + F3, it will change the case of the
data into Upper, Lower, Sentence, Title & Toggle. To know the difference
cases of the word just you need to press the Shift + F3 for multiple times.

If this post helps, Click Yes!
