For those who like myself would need to look this up, this is Excel's
PROPER():

PROPER

Capitalizes the first letter in a text string and any other letters in text
that follow any character other than a letter.
Converts all other letters to lowercase letters.

Syntax

PROPER(text)

Text   is text enclosed in quotation marks, a formula that returns text, or
a
reference to a cell containing the text you want to partially capitalize.

Examples

PROPER("this is a TITLE") equals "This Is A Title"

PROPER("2-cent's worth") equals "2-Cent'S Worth"

PROPER("76BudGet") equals "76Budget"
