How Can I Convert Decimals To Fractions?

Nov 19, 2008

1.25 is in cell A1. This number will often be buried in a longer part number that may look like ELL-1.25-S40.

I would like to use a formula in cell A2 to display the fractional equivalent (1-1/4).

Convert Fractions To Decimals And Decimal To Fraction

Feb 6, 2009

I know that if I enter =3/4 in a cell it will give me .75 but is there is formula to convert fractions into decimals or is this the best way to do it? I was also wondering if there is some way to convert the decimal amount to a fraction

for measurement conversions I know that
=B3*25.4 will convert a decimal to mm and so will the formula =CONVERT(E4,"in","mm")

and to convert mm to a decimal a few formula that work are
=MROUND(H4/25.4, 1/8)

But is there a way to convert a fraction to the decimal and is there a way to convert mm to a fraction instead of the decimal equivalent of the fraction?
or maybe a formula to convert mm to inches but instead of the result being in decimal format it would be in fraction format?

Fractions To Decimals With And Without Hyphens

Feb 12, 2014

I have fractions and whole numbers in a column as per the following.

E13 = 3/4
E15 = 5
E17 = 1-1/2

I can use the formula =SUBSTITUTE(E17,"-"," ")+0 which gives the correct result of 2.5 and also correct
for E15 with the answer 5.

But I'm stumped how to get it correct for E13 where it is less than whole number.

I can use the formula =IF(E13=0,0,("0 "&E11)+0) but that won't work for the remainder of the cells.

Convert Fractional Odds To Decimals

May 29, 2007

When exporting a set of historical sports results to Excel 2003 the numeric odds are converted to a date eg 7/2 changes to 07-Feb. Can this be prevented or adjusted to retain the original data.

Also if I may ask can the UK style odds be converted to a decimal style. Eg. 7/2 (UK) needs to be converted to 4.5 ( Decimal equivalent )

Convert Hours To Fractions Of Hours

May 28, 2009

I am attempting to convert a spreadsheet of times (listed in the format 06:15:39.62, where 06 is the hour, 15 is the minutes, 39 is the seconds, and .62 is in truncated miliseconds) into fractions of hours (so, 6.25 [NOT 6:25!]). I've so far been doing it manually for each value, which is quite tedious (doing basic division of seconds and minutes into hours, to find the fraction) but I'd like a single formula which I can then apply to the whole spreadsheet.

Concatenating Fractions

Apr 6, 2008

I'm trying to create a model for woodworking where I can enter fractional wood sizes and have Excel create panel sizes and board lengths for cabinetry. I can easily get the inputs formatted in fractions, but then I'd like to have a concatenation formula that joins two fractions and displays a panel size as a fraction. However, when I try to do this, the concatenation formula changes the fractions to decimals.

Example: cell A1 is 3/4" formatted as fraction. Cell A2 is 1 1/2" formatted as fraction. Let's say I want a to concatenate so that A3 reads

3/4 x 1 1/2

But when I use concatenate (A1," x ",A2) the answer in A3 reads

.75 x 1.5

Specific Fractions In Cells?

Feb 11, 2014

How do you limit a cell to only display fractions in sixteenths, eighths, quarters, and halves?

I'll give an example.....we use excel to cut list doors in our cabinet shop. On a three panel door it will spit out a fraction of 1/12" (or 5/12, or 7/12 etc), but this looks a lot like 1/2" and the guys frequently cut them the wrong size.

Is there any way to limit a cell so it will only display in these fractions 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 etc? and I don't mean by just saying to format in sixteenths, because if I do that then it displays 12/16" when I want it to say 3/4".

I basically want it to round to the nearest sixteenth, but I want it to display to the closest sixteenth, eighth, quarter, half etc.

Formatting Cells As Fractions

Nov 8, 2008

I have a spreadsheet to calculate piping offsets, center to center.
The formula in B:1 is simple. Take the length in cell A:1 and multiply
it by the square root of 2.

I then increment the length by 1/8 of an inch through cell A:180 and those
results are place in B:2 thru B:180.

The results are display to the nearest 1/16 of an inch. But if the actual
dimension is eight and one half inch, it is displayed as 8 8/16. For aesthetic
reason i wish to display the reducible fractions reduced. So that 8 8/16
is displayed as 8 1/2 inch.

I understand that i may go to each cell and individually format it accordingly
as halves
as quarters
as eights
but was wondering if there is an easier method.

Fractions To Decimal Conversion

I have received help on this topic in the past and I though I had solved the issue, however I realized recently that my formula will not work on any fractions larger than 1 inch. I am converting machine threads in fraction form to a decimal equivalent. here is an example of the what the entry looks like before it is converted.

1/2-20 3A (becomes .5000)or
3/4-13 2A (becomes .7500)or
1-14 3A this one will not work with my current formula (should be 1.0000);

Fractions In UserForm TextBox

Nov 11, 2006

I know I can use fractions in Excel, eg. 1/4 will yield .25 when formatted for number.

I wanted to allow users to enter fractions in a userform, but alas, it seems to come out as text. So I gave up on the idea, and then it hit me that this forum might be able to provide the answer. If so, maybe I'll include it before I finish my project.
In a nutshell, I want to have users put in fractions, decimals or whole numbers in the userform so I can use it in formulas. (I haven't given any thought to handling combinations like 1 1/2. Later for that). Is there any way for the Excel to know that the textbox on the userform is a number?

Formula Returns Value With Fractions Of Pennies Even Though There Are None

Feb 14, 2014

I created a table for a check register. Column D is the transaction amount and column I is the updated balance. Column D has no formulas. It is where I enter the transaction amount. I checked all entries and even re-typed them. I extended the decimals out to the maximum and they are all. $$.CC000000000etc - no fractions of pennies. However the Subtotal 109 formula at the bottom of the table computes the answer with fractions of pennies even though there are no entries with fractions of pennies. And at row 118 in column I it also starts computing it as fractions of a penny.

Column I has a formula. Row 1 of course is titles. The second row is my begining balance with this formula: +"Table Name"[[#This Row],[Amount]] In other words what is in Column D row 2 as my first transaction, the beginning balance. The rest of the column has this formula +I(row above)+$D(that row) so in column 3 it is +I2+$D3 and so forth down the rest of the table. It had read +I2+"Table Name"[[#This Row],[Amount]] but I changed it to $D because I thought that might fix the error. It didn't

Columns D and I are the only ones with dollar amounts and really any numbers, except for the dates in column B. E is the envelope, F is the category, and G is the transaction status (cleared, pending, etc.). They have drop down boxes. Column H is notes. It is formatted as text. In the transaction amount column (D) I enter debits as negative numbers and credits as positive. e.g., a check written for $20 is -20.00 and a deposit of $20 is 20.00. Column I, my balance does not have any negative numbers. -fortunately-

The problem is minor and I could work around it. However it impacts my formula which tells me that I "balance." It will not return the value "Balanced" as it is computing a variance between my bank balance+uncleared items being equal to my CR balance by a fraction of a penny.

Time Fractions And User Input

Mar 12, 2008

What I am doing is creating a spreadsheet solution to tack race times. These show up in past performances in the following formats in paper copies: 45 2/5 seconds. The end user would have to put in maybe 30 of these times based on the number of contestants. Keeping in mind that the 45 2/5 number will be used in some calculations, I want to give the user the easiest input interface. Meaning instead of inputting like this; 0:45.4 (mm:ss/00 format), I would like them to just enter 45.4. the spreadsheet would input format this cell into a time format that would be able to have calculations done to it. Another example might be 1:35.60 (mm:ss.00 format) which is 1 minute 35 and 3/5 seconds. This would be entered as 135.6.

A few questions first:

1) Would it be easier to leave the number inputed alone until the calculations ar finished then translate into a time factor?


2) would it be necessary to convert into a time factor as inputted be cause of the 60 factor involved with the time factor?

Having asked those questions, setting this all up with the exact scope I am working towards, any help or sugesstions as to the best way to proceed would be fantastic!
