    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has done the OCR Caesar Cipher task and would be able to provide me with some guidance/tips on tackling this task.

    I'm finding this course quite difficult due to a extremely bad standard of teaching by my teacher.

    Thanks in advance!

    Oops, I probably should of said this it's being done in Visual Basic.

    Edit: Not 100% sure I believe it's C#

    Yes!
    the document attached has an awful lot of info about the python and if you want to find a specific thing press ctrl F and write the keyword e.g. upper case
    i also advise you to start on code academy if you haven't yet
    this is some kinda code - i dunno if that's handy or not
    Assuming your data is in a1 cell
    =PROPER(A1) this formula will CAP every letter after " ". Ex
    Input: "product for office" Output: "Product For Office"

    =UPPER(LEFT(A1,1))&RIGHT(A1,LEN( A1)-1)
    This formula will upper only first letter
    Output: "Product for office"

    I'm working with C# and not Python but I'll try to figure out the equivalent.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6IDxl-3WAA , this should help even though this is for a course with C it should give you enough insight on what to do. Good Luck!!
