Converting Feet-Inches to Inches Excel

0 votes

Hi I have a large excel spreadsheet that contains the heights of different athletes in the form of

6' 4.25"
6' 2.75"

I'm at a loss as to how to get all of these heights into precise inches using a single calculation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We must parse the data because these are string texts rather than actual integers. The components of the string will be extracted and converted to numbers using the following:

=LEFT(A1, FIND("'",A1)-1)*12 + MID(A1,FIND("'",A1)+1,LEN(A1)-FIND("'",A1)-1)
