Documentation/How Tos/Calc: CONVERT ADD function
Converts a number from one measurement system to another.
This function is only available if the Analysis AddIn is installed.
CONVERT_ADD(number; originalunits; newunits)
- number is the number to be converted.
- originalunits and newunits are text representing the original and new measurement systems. These are case-sensitive, and must be selected from the table below. Units in bold accept an optional prefix as a decimal multiplier from the table below that.

- The above units may be preceded by a decimal multiplier. For example k (kilo) is the prefix for 103 - so km means kilometres. If the unit is a measure of area the multiplier is squared, and if it is a measure of volume the multiplier is cubed. For example km2 means square kilometres, that is 106 square metres. The following table lists the prefixes:
|prefix < 1||y (10-24), z (10-21), a (10-18), f (10-15), p (10-12), n (10-9), u (10-6), m (10-3), c (10-2), d (10-1)|
|prefix > 1||e (101), h (102), k (103), M 106), G (109), T (1012), P (1015), E (1018), Z (1021), Y (1024)|
- returns 10, the number of feet in 120 inches.
- returns 914.4, that is 10 yards expressed in centimetres.
- For historical reasons, many of the units do not use international standard abbreviations.
- This function is not generally compatible with other spreadsheets.
