# Converting From Kilos To Stones And Pounds

## I'm trying to write a spreadsheet that compares body weights for older people in the UK who are not at ease with metric figures. I've searched the board and have come up with several answers, but they don't seem to work for me. For instance, cell A1 is kilos, and I'd like that weight in stones and pounds in cell A2. What I've come up with for cell A2 is this: =ROUND((A1*2.2046)/14,)&"st " &ROUND(MOD((A1*2.2046),14),0)&"lbs" This works for, let's say, 90.8kgs in A1 (answer: 14st 4lbs), but if I enter 87.6kgs, for example, I get an answer of 14st 11lbs. I think it's something to do with the "ROUND" function but I'm struggling. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks. By the way, for non-Imperial weight people, multiplying by 2.2046 converts kilos to pounds, and there are 14 pounds (lbs) in a stone.

Converting Euros To Pounds
I have a large spreadsheet that I need to convert the euros amount to the equivalant in pounds in various places throughout the spreadsheet.

Formula To Subtract Pounds & Ounces
I need to build a spreadsheet that subtracts from a cumulative weight recorded in pounds and ounces. For example, in a fishing tournament, a person has 5 fish to weigh. They place their fish one at a time in a bag hanging from a digital scale that reads in pounds and ounces, and record the cumulative weight as the fish are added. We want to know what the total weight is of all 5 fish, but also what the individual weight is of each of the 5 fish.

The easy way to do it is to place the first fish in the bag and record the weight, then place the second fish in the bag with the first fish and record the cumulative weight of the 2 fish together. Continue this until all 5 fish are in the bag, and record the final total weight.

Then, to get the weights of each individual fish, the first weight is as it is, the second fish weight would be Cumulative Weight recorded for Fish 2 minus the weight of Fish 1. To get the weight of Fish 3, you would subtract the Cumulative Weight for the first 3 fish from the Cumulative Weight of the first 2 fish, and so on.

For example:

Weight of the Bag with:
1 Fish: 1-lb 2-oz
2 Fish: 2-lb 14-oz
3 Fish: 5-lb 6-oz
4 Fish: 9-lb 7-oz
5 Fish: 11-lb 9-oz.

We can subtract the cumulative weights to determine the individual weights of each fish added to the bag and know that:

Fish 1 is 1-lb 2-oz
Fish 2 is 1-lb 12-oz
Fish 3 is 2-lb 8-oz
Fish 4 is 4-lb 1-oz
Fish 5 is 2-lb 2-oz

Easy to do in my head, or on paper, but not so easy to do in Excel because it's pounds and ounces, which is how the digital scale reads out. But, when you're doing this for 20-30 fishermen, it's not that easy to do it on paper.

Sum Of Pounds And Ounces For Fishing Tournament
I need a spreadsheet to calculate the sum of pounds and ounces. Example
3 fish caught weighing 5lb 8oz plus 3lb 8oz plus 2lb 8 oz = 11lb 8Oz.

This calculation is when the weigher has a scale that measures in OZ.
I also need a spreadsheet that will take a scale that measures in 10ths to add lb and 10th and give a result in lb and oz?

Converting Hh:mm:ss To AM
I am working within Excel and am hoping to convert from A LOT of columns containing hh:mm:ss to AM at the end, however I am unsure of a fast / efficient way to do this. I am using MS Office Excel 07....

HH:MM:SS Converting..
I am currently exporting data into excel. The data i am exporting comes in the form of hh:mm:ss. When i export it into excel...everything appears fine. I am also using the data to generate charts. I have multiplied the values by 1440 in order to show as minutes for the charts.

When i import the data to excel and the hours value is bigger than 24, for some reason excel converts it into totally different figures. The minutes caluation (*1440) still works fine, but i need the actual hh:mm:ss to be correct, not amended by excel. Is there a way to do this. Ex. Data imported: 74:51:03 in hh:mm:ss - excel coverts this to 02:51:03.

Converting 50% To 1.5
I have some code where it prompts you to enter a %, and then it calculates if the Lst Wk Sales > Avg Wkly Sales + %.

box2 = InputBox("Enter % increased by Sales")
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-111]>RC[-121]+" & box2 & ",""YES"",""NO"")"

The problem I have is that excel treats the formula as +50% rather +1.5. Can anyone help me around this issue?

Converting Date Getting #VALUE
I have an export from a database application in which I have thousands of dates. The dates are not in a date format (normal problem) so I wrote a formula to convert them as follows.

Original Date in A1 : 11/13/2008 This is mm/dd/yyyy

Formula : =VALUE(MID(A1,LEN(A1)-6,2)&"/"&LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-8)&"/"&RIGHT(A1,4))

Result : 13/11/2008

This seems to work at first, until I looked more closely. If I change the date I am converting so that the date in cell A1 is 11/12/2008, ie. the dd value is less than 13, then the formula no longer works. It is fine for all values over 12.

All I get in these cases is #VALUE!

Converting Numbers
im working on making a price list from a pdf file. however, the pdf file has the prices in euros listed as 1.300,00 and 765,00 and 45,00 and 1.565,00 . i was wondering if there was a tool or so in excel that can change the comma and periods in the number so they read as american format like 1,300.00 and 765.00 and 45.00 .and also if there is a formula or so to convert these numbers to Dollars in another column.

Converting Number To Time
I am trying to compile data from several different managers within my company. They all have similar workbooks, and have been entering time in a number format. Currently they have values that look like this:

Excel - Book1___Running: 12.0 : OS = Windows XP (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutA1=ABCD11.351.18  22.012.23  32.333.05  44.124.22  Sheet1 [HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name boxPLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

However, the data should appear as this:

Excel - Book1___Running: 12.0 : OS = Windows XP (F)ile (E)dit (V)iew (I)nsert (O)ptions (T)ools (D)ata (W)indow (H)elp (A)boutD1=DEFG101:3501:18  202:0102:23  302:3303:05  404:1204:22  Sheet1 [HtmlMaker 2.42] To see the formula in the cells just click on the cells hyperlink or click the Name boxPLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS TABLE IMAGE ON SAME PAGE! OTHEWISE, ERROR OF JavaScript OCCUR.

So, in any instance the period or decimal point should be a colon and the format of the cells should be in [m]:ss.

I want to be able to select a range within the workbook and run a macro that will convert the numbers into the "[m]:ss format.

Converting Time To Seconds.
I have the below macro. It is used to translate time to seconds (i.e. 0:20:04 minutes to 1204 seconds)
This works well, but i just want to know 3 things.

Converting Time With VBA
I have a spreadsheet that automatically inserts the colon into time entries (2123 converts to 21:23), my problem is that the VBA doesn't recognize single minutes (i.e. when when a time is entered from 12:01am (0001 or 01) until 12:09am (0009 or 09)).

Converting Text To Time ....
I have a column (R) that is formatted as text. Each cell represents a time in military format.

How do I convert the values in the column to be in 00:00 (hours:minutes) format instead of text?

For instance, 1200 is the value in R2. I want it to show as 12:00.

I tried the following:

1. Create a new column (S)
2. Format the new column (S) as 00:00 format
3. Copy cell R2 (whose value is 1200) and paste into S2.

Result: S2 value is the same (still 1200). Formatting in the S2 cell changed from 00:00 format BACK to text format upon me pasting.

So I tried and changed it BACK to 00:00 format, and I get 0:00 as the new value in cell S2. Also, the function bar shows "4/14/1903 12:00:00 AM" for cell S2. I need a formula for this apparently,

converting text strings to dates.

The dates I have imported into a spreadsheet are of the format:

Converting Non Standard Dates
I'm a moderate user of excel with some experience but need help creating a specific if statment.

I have a column "A" that shows dates formated like this: 060115 (January 15, 2006). Because excel does not recognize this as a valid numerical date I need column B to show what year the date falls under. To complicate it I need it to reflect a seasonal year from April 1 YYYY, to March 31, YYYY.

So here's an example. Say I have a date in column "A" of 050612 (June 12 2005). I need column "B" to look at that date and determine if it's >040105 and <033106 and return a result of "2005". I then need the formula to calculate an answer for up to 5 years worth of returns.

how to set up this type of =IF statement?

Converting Formula To UDF
creating a formula that would convert a string like 63008 (Mdyy format) to a format that Excel can read as a date

=IF(LEN(I2)=5,DATE(20&RIGHT(I2,2),LEFT(I2,1),MID(I2,2,2)),DATE(20&RIGHT(I2,2),LEFT(I2,2),MID(I2,2,2)))

In other words IF(the length of the cell value is 5, parse the date this way, otherwise parse it another way)

If I2=63008, this would output 6/30/2008

I want to convert this to a function since that formula is rather tedious to type out, but I am new to Excel programming

Converting A Number To A Date
I have a column of numbers that are currently text, but they actually represent a date.

I had a column of dates, but needed to convert them into a "week number", so used this formula: =INT((A2-1)/7)

I now need to "reverse" this, and take these numbers (5594, 5595...) and convert them back to actual dates.

Converting To Date Format
I collect data from a data historian and I'm having difficulty with a date format. The collected data is saved in a txt file and imported to Excel 2007.

The date returned by the historian is the following format

9/30/2007 8:45:18.000 PM

Converting Percentage Into Text Value?
I need to convert my percentage marks into values based on competency values. Once again my school board has change the final reporting method. Last year we had to use A, B, C, D. This year it is based on scales of 1- to 5. Since excel cannot have more than 7 nested IF statements I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to have a percentage mark converted into a scale number. Below is the following data.

0-5% = 1-
06-15% = 1
16-25% = 1+
26-35% = 2-
36-45% = 2
46-55% = 2+
56-59% = 3-
60-64% = 3
65-70% = 3+
71-76% = 4-
77-82% = 4
83-88% = 4+
89-94% = 5-
95-00% = 5

Converting Digit To Hour
I have simple (or not) question:
how can I convert a digit that I input into a cell to an hour format ?

I want to achieve something like this:
- when I input a digit into a cell , for example: 9 a want to convert it to 9:00 (9 hours, 0 minutes). How can I do it ?

Converting Numbers To Negative
Do you know if you can use the cell formatting to change the sign of a number? For example, the cell contains 123.45, but I want it to show as -123.45. I don’t want to use a formula to multiply by -1, because the data is being extracted from a database and I have to do a fair amount of work on the report with the formulas to do that.

I can format the number and it shows a minus but will not use the minus if I then use it in a calcualtion. I could use a calcualtion with a *-1 in it but for ease of use by other users who may take part of the Excel report it would be better if I could format the number to negative.

Converting Dates To Weeks
I require a worksheet function or group of function that will allow me to
convert my dates of format dd/mm/yyyy to Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4.

Converting Numbers To Date
I have a HTML table with a column with numbers like

3.6
2.5
1.8
....

and so on...

When I'm trying to open this table in Excel (.csv or if I cut n paste from HTML) Excel keeps converting it to date format.

03.jun
02.may
01.aug

This wouldn't be a problem if I could only go to Format -> Cell and choose Standard or something.

The problem is it ends up like this then:

39236
39204
39295

WTF? :D

I want this!

3.6
2.5
1.8

Converting Text To Number
I am currently trying to find an easy way to convert cell references to number format. The issue I'm having is when compiling a small formula (CONCATENATE) as part of a macro in order to produce a unique reference number to a column of data (1000's of cells long) I come accross the age old number stored as text issue after the macro has converted the formula to values.

Have tried editing the macro to number stored as text = false which removes the annoying little red triangle but the vlookup functions still wont read the values. My current solution is to highlight the entirity of the data and convert to number which takes a long long time as there are multiple lookups assigned to the cells, which for my current project is not acceptable.

Am looking for a quick solution, (with no interaction required) something that would convert the cells to the format required either before the formula is assigned and overwritten by values or just after. Currently I'm stumped.

Converting Web Imports

Each day is the same URL but with new current date.

The format for that date within the URL is: [url] ..

Numbers Are Converting To Decimals

#VALUE! 1.07.0

For some reason, it only recognizes cols b and c as Time.
The "AM" only shows when you click the cell, and it is displayed in the formula bar. When clicking a cell in Col A, there is a trailing space, ie: "8:00 "

Tried a couple things but couldn't get it to associate col A with time, besides manually removing the trailing space from each row. Using Trim() does not work.
