# Converting From Kilos To Stones And Pounds

Jul 19, 2007I'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.
