Default person's height format

Is there a way to format a cell so you only have to type
the numbers for a person's height as in 5 8, and the ' "
will automatically fill in?

Thanks

Default person's height format

Once you put the space in, the entry becomes text and cell formatting
doesn't work well with text.

You could enter 58 (5' 8") or 610 (6' 10") using this custom cell format:

[<100]#' #'';#' ##\"

or to treat 5 as 5'

[<10]#';[<100]#' #'';#' ##\"
