Hi 

There are 3 option to convert Excel formula to JS:

1. By creating JavaScript code corresponding to it.

2. Use Third part JQuery plugins to run Excel formules.

Hi 

I am not sure what exactly is you use case. I would request you to please explain it bit more.

But, if it is something related to converting First letter of Last Name in Dialog field to Capital, then we can certainly do it :

1. Dialog validation: in this validation check, you can specify any checks you would like to do.

Link:- http://www.nateyolles.com/blog/2016/02/aem-touch-ui-custom-validation

//  

$.validator.register({
  selector: '.field-phonenumber',
  validate: function(el) {
    var field,
        value; // Nay Javascript/Jquery condetions that you would like to check.

    field = el.closest(".coral-Form-field");
    value = el.val();

    if (!/^\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}$/.test(value)) {
      return Granite.I18n.get('The field must be a phone number in the format of "xxx-xxx-xxxx"');
    }
  },

Another Reference article for Dialog Validation is :- https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-touchui-validate.html

 

For JavaScript  to convert all first letter to capital:-

//var saa = sa.toLowerCase();
    var sb = saa.replace( /(^|\s)([a-z])/g , function(m,p1,p2){ return p1+p2.toUpperCase(); } );
    var sc = sb.replace(/\s+/g, '-');
    return sc;

 

I hope this would help you.
