This is a follow on qquestion from Converting Decimal Degrees to D:M:S in excel

There is a rounding error in The accepted solution

=CONCATENATE(TEXT(INT(ABS(A2)),"000"),":",TEXT(INT(ROUND(MOD(ABS(A2),1),2)*60),"00"),":",TEXT(ROUND(MOD(ROUND(MOD(ABS(A2),1),2)*60,1),2)*60,"00"),":",IF(A2<0,"S","N"),"/",TEXT(INT(ABS(J2)),"000"),":",TEXT(INT(ROUND(MOD(ABS(J2),1),2)*60),"00"),":",TEXT(ROUND(MOD(ROUND(MOD(ABS(J2),1),2)*60,1),2)*60,"00"),":",IF(J2<0,"W","E"))

Open in new window


Given these values in A2 & B2

78.004      123.997       I get  this 78:00:00:N/123:60:00:E

78.004      should be 78:00:14.4
123.997      should be 123:59:49.2


78:00:14:N/123:59:49:E

Any ideas how I amend the formula?
