# Convert and display feet, inches and fractions in excel

Hi folks

I understand there are several forums on this or similar but I am having a nightmare with it.

I have values displayed in decimal feet which I have converted to metres with no issues, but I now have to display this in inches and fractions as well as feet, inches and fractions. I have managed to get the conversion but cant simplify the fractions E.g., 16/32 is displayed but I would like it to = 1/2 but go to 32nds so there could be 7 5/32

for feet and inches and fractions I have edited a formula I found:

=INT('Decimal Feet'!D10)&"'"&IF(('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))," - "&INT(('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))*12)&IF((('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))*12)-INT(('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))*12),TEXT((('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))*12)-INT(('Decimal Feet'!D10-INT('Decimal Feet'!D10))*12)," ?/32"),"")&"""","")

For inches:

='Feet and inches (2)'!

Open to other options and any help much appreciated.

Thanks
