Default How to write the degree, minute second format in excel


Hello everybody,
Please, see the attached image that shows my question
What I need is to write the degree, minute second format (which is used for example to measure the angles or geographic coordinates)
Normally, it’s written in the following format:
70 12’ 13’’
Thank you

You can use a custom number format for the cell:
[h]° mm' ss''
The angle is input in decimal format and the 'Ί' is created via Alt-0186 (though you should be able to copy & paste the format from this post).

Hi Jamal,

For display purposes, you can divide the angle by 24.
For trig purposes, you can multiply the display value by 24.

What don't you understand? Have you applied the custom format? Have you looked at the attachments?

Default Decimal degrees to Deg Min Sec

If cell “E19” is 78.359272 in degrees decimal then:
CONCATENATE(TEXT(INT(E19),"##° "),TEXT(INT((E19-INT(E19))*60),"##'"),TEXT(MOD((E19-INT(E19))*60,INT((E19-INT(E19))*60))*60,"##.##"),"""")
Will return:
78° 21' 33.38"
It may seem complicated but it give the exact format to put in to Google Earth or similar software. U can do all your calculations in decimal. If u use radians u must convert to degrees before applying the formula.

Thanks fzuazua. Sounds to be cool. I’ll be trying it and see if it works with me

Hi fzuazua,

The code is working fine but sounds that it is for displaying purposes only. No calculations can be made!

So, for example, if the angles are required to be summed, then this operation can’t be performed

Is there still a way to have the correct display while the operations can also be preformed

First off Sorry for dragging up an old subject but google seemed to think it was relevant.

Thanks that sort of got me there it is a bit broken from when there was just seconds or parts of Seconds.

=CONCATENATE(TEXT(INT(E19),"00° "),TEXT(INT((E19-INT(E19))*60),"00' "),TEXT(MOD((E19*60*60),"1"),"00.000############## ##################"),"""")

Any MS Office program doesn't support degree format per se.

Macropod's solution assumes the numbers the format is applied to are dates (what is not in your case), and handles them accordingly;
All other solutions convert the value to text string -and are only working solutions for you.

You must have 2 columns - one for degree values, another for display. In case degrees are calculated only, you can hide the real degree column. Whenever you need to refer coordinates in some formula, you have to refer to degree column, not to degree display column.
