1. I like what you have done above.

Can you please try and integrate this formula with the existing formula I have? I'm finding the weight of a value in mm or a weight of a value in feet but I have to change my foot/inch measurements to just feet with decimals. I would rather be able to put 12' 3", for example, instead of googling "how many feet is 147"?"

Current formula below:

=IF(D16>0,(D16/25.4/12)*(E16/25.4/12)*40.84*C16*\$A\$11,IF(F16>0,F16*G16*40.84*\$A\$11*C16,""))

Thanks!
