    I have 2 cells. D2 is where I will enter the pounds in. I want D1 to change the pounds into Kilograms. How do I do this?

    there's 2.204623 pounds in a kilo, so in cell D1 just enter =D2/2.204623

    if you want to show "kgs" after the number also, try =TEXT((D2/2.204623),"#,###.000")&" kgs" where the amount of 0s are however many decimals you want

    Justine, you could also employ the CONVERT function which is made available with the installation of the Analysis ToolPak...

    =CONVERT(D2,"lbm","kg")

    If you'll consult the Help topic for CONVERT you'll see it's quite useful when you don't know the conversion factors or want greater precision than you can recall.
