convert decimal inches into feet and inches
I am using the following formula to convert decimal inches into feet and
inches. The problem I have is that the formula is not reducing the fractions. For instance, when the figure is 35.625 it converts it to 2'11 10/16" instead of 2'11 5/8". I need to keep the inches in 16th's but want the formula to reduce the fraction when needed. Any suggestions on how to make this happen? =INT(F5/12)&"'"&TEXT(MOD(F5,12),"# ??/16")&""""

convert decimal inches into feet and inches
I actual dug a little deeper yesterday and found out how to do it. The
formula is shown below. =INT(F5/12)&"'"&TEXT(MOD(F5,12),"# ??/??")&"""" The only issue I have with this one is that it has extra spaces in the final numbers when you don't have four numbers for the fraction. For instance, 2'11 5/8" is actually 2'11 5/8 ". It replaces the missing ?, from the formula, with a space. This is close enough for me. If anyone knows how to fix it though, let me know.
