Hi,
I am working on a data set which manages positions for landing sites. I need to be able to format positions in 2 different ways, one as Degrees Decimal Minutes (including symbols), and the other as Decimal degrees (+ and - based on E/W).
The positions are entered in an info sheet for each landing site, in the first format, and an index which takes the position but in the second format (needed for a company we use for mapping).
Thanks.
