LCase Function

This page is specific to the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) Language Reference for Office 2010.

Returns a String that has been converted to lowercase.



The required string argument is any valid string expression. If string contains Null, Null is returned.


Only uppercase letters are converted to lowercase; all lowercase letters and nonletter characters remain unchanged.

This example uses the LCase function to return a lowercase version of a string.

Dim UpperCase, LowerCase
Uppercase = "Hello World 1234"    ' String to convert.
Lowercase = Lcase(UpperCase)    ' Returns "hello world 1234".
