Converting Decimal Degrees to Degrees/Minutes/Seconds
Is there a formula or format to convert angles between decimal degrees and degrees minutes seconds?
I have got a worksheet with cells like:
I need to get that into decimal degrees like
Is there a way to do this with a formula? I start with find, left, right functions, but I ended up parenthesis hell.
I need to format the results of a =DEGREES(ATAN(x)) formula to be in Degrees Minutes Seconds format. I don't want to have to do decimal degrees, not put the results in 3 different columns (which I have done in the past).
In excel I have the situation where I have the following
etc that needs to be converted into degrees minutes and seconds format
I did use the text to columns function with the space delimited and formatting the cells as text. Then combining the cells with a formula eg =A1&"°"&B1&"'"&C1. However I would like to write a cell formula without resorting to VBA that does this.
I also tried using the LEFT, RIGHT, FIND, MID and LEN text formulas almost got there but not completely grasping the functions in their entirety.
Thank you for looking into the matter
