If you have ever had to convert miles to kilometers, inches to centimeters, or Fahrenheit degrees to Celsius degrees then Excel can help you, too.<br /><br />1. For Excel 2007/2010 users, click the Office Button in 2007 (or File tab in 2010)<br />2. Click Excel Options button<br />3. Click Add-Ins on the left<br />4. Click on Analysis ToolPak from list <br />5. Make sure Excel Add-Ins is selected in the Manage box<br />6. Click Go. Click to put a check mark in the box next to Analysis ToolPak and then click OK to return to your worksheet.<br /><br />Then, you can use the Excel functions to do the conversions. For example, if you want to convert 2 1/2 pounds to kilograms, use the following Excel function: =CONVERT(2.5, “lbm”, “kg”) Your answer should be 1.133981. To find the kilogram equivalent of 1 pound, just replace 2.5 in the formula with 1.0, which should yield a result of 0.453592.    More detail...
