    Metric to imperial measurements

    Could someone tell me how to change my default measurements from metric to
    imperial in Excel 2003? I can't work in centimetres!

    Look at the CONVERT function in Help.

    Re: Metric to imperial measurements

    I already looked at Convert. This doesn't actually change the defaults. I
    want my margin settings, for instance, to be in inches rather than cm.

    Thanks for your reply though.

    This is a Windows OS setting, not an Excel setting.

    You would go to Windows Control Panel>Regional and Language
    Options>Regional Options tab>Customize and set the "measurement system" to
    Metric.

    This option will affect all programs.

    Re: Metric to imperial measurements

    Thanks. This only gives me the option of "Metric" or "US" - not sure which is
    the lesser of the two evils! I rather hoped that Excel would have a setting
    like Word has, where you can change the default just for that program. It
    seems it hasn't. Thanks anyway.

    Sorry, should have read set to "inches".

    U.S. settings are inches.

    Isn't that what you wanted?

    Re: Metric to imperial measurements

    Yes, inches is what I want, but won't I get the other US settings as well,
    such as letter paper size rather than A4?

    Re: Metric to imperial measurements

    I'm set for U.S. measurement but I still have the A4 size option in the "Paper
    Size" dialog box, along with a dozen or more others.
