I would like to convert MM to Inches, I have over 2000 metric numbers in a column and would like to highlight the column and just convert to inches and Poof all the metric numbers are now in Inches. Is this at all possible?

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

Hi there,

This formula should do what you're after:

=CONVERT(A1,"mm","in")

Hope it helps.
