# Conversions Of Decimal Feet To Decimal Inches - Formula?

Apr 15, 2012
I have to make a excel document in which I have length and width in feet and inch format.

E.g. 10.01 in which 10 is feet and .01 is inch

I have all the length and width values in the above format. And what I want to do is convert the inch value (10.01) to feet value (.01=.08 feet) .

Just like the calculator here does.. [URL] ........

Like

10.01=10.08

10.02=10.16

10..03=10.25

...and so on...

Here is table of conversions from inches to decimal feet. But I don't know how to get a formula for this in excel...????

Inch Decimal of a Foot

1 inch 0.0833

2 inches 0.167

3 inches 0.250

4 inches 0.333

5 inches 0.417

6 inches 0.500

7 inches 0.583

8 inches 0.667

9 inches 0.750

10 inches 0.833

11 inches 0.917

12 inches 1.000

I often use feet and inch inputs for calulations. I prefer to input a typical feet & inch input into one cell using this format: ft-n.

example: 12ft 9in would input as 12-9

This would need to be converted into a decimal for calcualtions. Also I would like to convert from Decimal back to ft-in.

I need a formula to convert:

3.759 to 3' 9"

3.974 to 4'

4.005 to 4'

I have this currently:

=INT(D9)&"' "&ROUND(TEXT((D9-INT(D9))*12,"#"),0)&CHAR(34)

However, 3.974 returns 3' 12" and 4.005 returns a #VALUE error. I'm picky about the spaces. I'd like it formatted as I have it now.

I am currently working on cut sheets for my current project. I need to take my decimal feet (ie 1.55) and display them as feet and inches (1' 6 5/8") not (1' 6 3/5")

I have a formula which is this

=INT(F17)&"' "&TEXT(12*(F17-INT(F17)),"# #/#")&CHAR(34),

It works but the problem is the fractional inches 6 3/5" i need them to display in 1/8 1/4 1/2 when applicable. Is there something i could add to this formula to make my inches read like a measuring tape (1' 6 5/8") 1/8 1/4 1/2??? I attached the spreedsheet for review.

I am working in excel 2003 and I need to convert feet and inches into decimal feet. Example: 15'-10 5/8" to 15.88542

15'-10 5/8" will be in say, column B, and the conversion will be in say, column Q.

This formula will be copied all the way down the page.

how to do this or can it even be done in this version?

I am new to Excel but not programming and I am looking for a recommendation for the following. I have a spreadsheet that simply takes the length and width of an area and computes the square feet and yardage and other sundry items. I am entering the feet/inches as follows:

Example: 11.3 (equals 11/ft 3/inches)

The correct decimal conversion should be 11.25 but, obviously, it does not know that the number to the right of the decimal point is an indicator of inches. (ex.: .5=.42, .7=.58, .9=.75, .11=.92)

I have approached this from the stand point of an IF condition, finding the position of the "." and grabbing everything to the right (+1) but I understand that the limitation is 7 nested IFs.

Can someone get me kick-started on what the best approach would be to get my entry to convert to the true decimal equivalent? Currently, I am simply doing the conversion from memory but I would rather automate this sometimes errant approach.

This is a continuance of the Q and A below. Except the answer below converted a decimal like 1.44 to and answer like 1' 5.28".

except the final format I am after requires the 5.28" to be fractional such as:

1' - 5 1/4"

Is there a formula for this format?

I am making an excel spreadsheet that auto fills in a lot of items for a construction company. One of the most important ones is the Roof Pitch.

1/12 pitch is 1 inch rise every 12 inches.

2/12 pitch is 2 inch rise every 12 inches.

I would like it to auto calculate this and add it to the over all height of the building.

Example:

A house is 20 feet wide with a 2/12 pitch.

Since the Ridge is in the center we divide the Width in half.

So a 2/12 pitch over a span of 10 feet is 20 inches

I have a vba macro that takes data from one workbook and pastes it into another workbook. In doing this I have declared a few variables of type single (I only need two decimal precision). However, when I copy the values from the cells on the source workbook and paste them into the target workbook, the numbers end up having 12 decimal places. Ultimately, this extra precision causes my totals to be off by .01 or more after a while. I have tried rounding the number as I pull it off the source workbook into the variable, but that didn't matter. How do I solve this problem? Code for pulling data from source workbook:...

Basically, I want to format a group of cells to display 1 decimal figure if the number is not a whole number. If the number is a whole number (or if the rounded first decimal place is 0) I want it to display no decimal.

I need to convert inches to feet and inches in this format:

88 1/2 = 7' 4-1/2"

...so that if 88 1/2 is in cell A1, cell B1 will show 7' 4-1/2".

The exact syntax of B1 must be as shown.

I need to convert a column of numbers currently formatted with 2 decimal places e.g. 112.12 to 4 decimal places (without the decimal point). I need the end result to be 1121200. I've tried a few different suggestions given on the forum previously but can't seem to retain the 4 decimal places that I require.

I am trying to create a unique sample code by putting together the values of other cells that a user will input. It's all working well apart from the last part, where I am trying to include a decimal number. I want the decimal number to appear without the central "." and in a four digit format. e.g. 2.5 would appear as 0250, 14.25 would appear as 1425. This is the formlua I am using currently:

=IF(ISBLANK(B4),"",IF(LEFT(C4,1)="w",(B4&"-"&TEXT(F4,"YYMMDD")&C4&TEXT(G4,"HHMM")),(B4&"-"&TEXT(F4,"YYMMDD")&C4&LEFT(TEXT(H4,"00"),2)&RIGHT(TEXT(H4,"00"),2))))

However, where the value of H4 is 2.5, I am getting a result of 0303 (I've put this part in bold). I have attached a small spreadsheet to aid understanding.

I am creating a spreadsheet for some deliveries. The pieces I have are all in feet and inches and multiplied by a certain quantity. I need a formula to run this and give me feet as an answer.

I have 4 cells, in A1 I have feet without the foot mark (20) and in cell B1 I have inches without the " (5). In cell C1 I have 20. How do I write a formula to do the following:

20'-5" multiplied by 20 = Answer in D1 408'

I need a formula to take a number with several decimal places and round it up to two decimal places to either .33, .66 or, .00 if its above .66.

For example, 4.23423423423423 will be 4.33

4.43453453533434 will be 4.66

4.8353453453 will be 5.00

Lets say the number is in cell A1. What formula would do this?

My formula is not rounding properly. Cells I4, J4 and K4 all filter from the results of cell I3 divided by 3. (e.g. 10/3 = 3.333) I was able to remove the decimals in cells I1:K3, but the between formulas (I4:K4) keeps adding the decimal back, therefore this results in errors to my chart.

Is it possible to Conditionally Format using the (Custom) Data Validation Tool one or both of the following conditions:-

1. Force the user to enter the correct decimal point position for a given currency :-

The are 3 different decimal point locations location's - 0.87624 / 123.123 / 1273.00 There are always 6 numerals We have a table to lookup which specifies where the decimal point is on all currencies

CURRENCY AUDUSD< List is linked to a table

Price - High 0.87744< Decimal point dependant on chosen currency pair chosen

Price - Low 0.86596

Price - Close 0.86823

2. As above but numbers once entered will be formatted accordingly to the correct decimal place to the corresponding currency

If you look at the attached file in Column E line 47 you will see that it displays

373.97. However if you look in the formula bar it shows 373.9694. I am trying to make it so that the formula bar shows the same number as in the cell. Any idea on how to do this? I have tried everything I know how to do, which is not much.

i have lets say a table with rows that contain the following data.

SKU - PRICE - SALEPRICE - DESCRIPTION - SALEDESCRIPTION

What I am trying to do, is to make a concat formula that says:

SALEDESCRIPTION = DESCRIPTION+price was+PRICE+now+SALEPRICE

In essence so that i can simply pull down the formula, and all our product descriptions have 'special offer, was xx (price) is now xx (sale price).

This works fine, except that in the SALEDESCRIPTION, the amounts from the price and saleprice fields are being brought over without decimal places and without currency symbol.

I have tried formatting those two columns as currency or accounting but neither works.

This is my formula with concatenation: =K3/K1*100 & "c" & " Each"

This is the result of the values in K3 divided by K1: 6.41666666666667c Each

I would like to limit the decimal places to two: 6.41c Each.

I have tried to format the cell and none of the formatting options have any effect.

If possible I would like to use the rounding function but I do not know how to combine the formula + text + rounding.
