In this example, we have a fictional address list in which part of the data is in all caps and the rest is in sentence case. Additionally, some zip codes have the additional 4 digits and for this example, we only want to use 5-digit zip codes.

We use the UPPER function to change all the text to uppercase and the LEFT function to choose only the first 5 digits of the zip code. Also shown is paste values.
