Hello All, I know this is a very old thread, but I'm having trouble with the fact that sheets will not recognize 22'  11 1/2" (and such) as values, but says this is text. I have tried all sorts of things and tried to make Macros work, the formulas in this feed, but I always end up with errors. Using the # ##/## does not seem to fix it either
What WOULD fix it, is the USA finally getting rid of this outdated nonsensical imperial system and using the decimal system, but alas, we are stuck with feet and inches. HOW do I make sheets recognize the imperial system as a VALUE instead of text? The reason I have all these numbers is because I"m exporting from an Architecture Program and I am trying to avoid having to manually type in the values again. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you. On Friday, April 9, 2010 at 3:25:39 PM UTC4, Bob Phillips wrote: Try a format of # ##/##  HTH Bob <E LAR wrote in message ...
