From: Smooth813 on 24 Apr 2010 17:32 Hey everyone, Essentially my problem boils down to summing baseball innings in a column. The data I am copying and pasting comes in the standard form of dictating innings. Instead of saying 1 and 1/3 inning, baseball translates this as 1.1 innings. Similarly, 1 and 2/3 inning is 1.2. The problem is that when I sum the innings, it treats dictation such as 1.1 as 1 and 1/10 an inning. So, when summing a row, such as the one below, I get things such as 455.4 innings, which isn't possible in terms of baseball dictation. 101.2 105 96 89.1 31 33.1 Is there a way to fix this, either by changing the sum back into baseball dictation or by translating the dictation into a real number? I'm not sure if there an easy way to go about this so I thought I would ask for your help. Thanks.
From: Andre C on 24 Apr 2010 19:10 Hi, You can use a helper column B (if your innings data is in column A) INT(A1)+MOD(A1,1)*10/3 and copy down as needed (say from B1:B10) However, the sum total will need to be recoverted back to your inning format: INT(SUM(B1:B10))+ROUND(MOD(SUM(B1:B10),1)*3/10,1) Hope this helps AndrĂ© (A baseball fan living in Australia) "Smooth813" wrote: > Hey everyone, > > Essentially my problem boils down to summing baseball innings in a column. > The data I am copying and pasting comes in the standard form of dictating > innings.
