Hi
There are 2.54cm to 1 inch, so you multiply inches by 2.54 to get cm.

The only Imperial unit Excel's CONVERT knows about is the pint
=CONVERT(A1,"uk_pt","ml" gives 568.260698087162 (when A1 =1)

To convert fluid ounces: =CONVERT(A1/20,"uk_pt","ml")
remember there are 20 fluid ounces in an Imperial pint not 16 as in US pint
and the ounces are of different size

Google is a great place to get conversion values
Enter "1 imperial pint to litres" (without quotes) in the search box and
1 Imperial pint = 0.568261485 litres

best wishes

Hi Andy

Thanks for your reply, and if I work in whole numbers, this is accurate.
But when I use numbers like 3 7/16, the conversion is not accurate unless I
place the whole number in one cell, and the fraction in a separate cell, then
* each cell by 25.4 and then add them together. Is this what you do?

FWIW ...
if you input in A1: 3, in B1: 7/16
with B1 formatted as Fraction (As sixteenths)
you could put in C1: =CONVERT(SUM(A1:B1),"in","m")*100
which yields: 8.73125
