Asked By BoyertownCaske on 16-Feb-09 10:58 PM
Is there a formula available to allow me to place a Celsius temperature
(numeric equivalent) in a cell and it returns that number as a Fahrenheit

I would like to input 2 (as in 2 o C) and have the answer be returned as:
35.6 o F
The degree symbol needs to be superscript.

Thank you.

Put an integer value in cell A2 then put this formula in B2

You could use


Format the cell using Format/Cell/Number/Custom  0.0°F

Or you could just use the simple formula:

= A1 * 9/5 + 32

To get the degree sign, etc:

Question:  Although I followed what was given, my answer displays #NAME?

This is what I did:  Cell a1 is my input and cell b1 contains the formula:

b1 returns #NAME?

Will you explain what I am doing incorrectly.  Do the cells need to be
formatted in any manner?

CONVERT() in pre-XL07 versions is part of the Analysis Toolpak Add-in
that you can install (Tools/Add-ins...).

Alternatively, you can just use the formula I posted before:

=A1 * 9/5 + 32

which works in all versions.
