Default Convert decimals to area measurement

I am working on a history project in which I need to convert acreage given in
decimal form to acres, roods and perches (40 perches = 1 rood; 4 roods = 1
acre). Is is possible to do this in Excel?

Ajmul

Returns a text value =INT(A6*4)& " Roods" & " " &MOD(A6*4,4)& " Perches"

I have not tried it for fractions of an acre

Forget my last post Arggh!

Try instead
=INT(A6*4)& " Roods" & " "&(A6*4-INT(A6*4))*160 & " Perches"

where the decimal acreage is in A6
