# How To Convert Feet to Meters in Excel

Hey there! Today, I’m going to show you how to convert feet to meters using Excel. Excel is a really handy tool that can be used for converting various units into different alternatives. So, let’s get started with setting up a foot to meter conversion spreadsheet in Excel!

### Convert Feet to Meters Without a Function

First things first, let me give you a quick tip. Did you know that one foot is equal to 0.3048 meters? It’s true! So, if you want to convert feet to meters using a calculator, all you have to do is multiply the number of feet by 0.3048. Another way to do this is by dividing the number of feet by 3.28, since there are 3.28 feet in a meter. It’s that simple!

Now, let me give you the formulas:

**Foot x 0.3048 = Meter**

**Foot / 3.28 = Meter**

Once you have these formulas, you can add them to any cell in your Excel spreadsheet. For example, you can open a blank spreadsheet, select cell C4, and in the fx bar at the top, type in ‘=10*0.3048’ and hit Enter. The spreadsheet will then give you the value of 3.048 meters in cell C4.

If you want to convert values that you enter in the spreadsheet, you can use cell references. Let’s say you want to convert the value in cell C5. You can input ’10’ as the feet value in cell C5. Then, select cell D5 and enter the formula ‘=C5*0.3048’ in the fx bar. Cell D5 will now return the value of 3.048 meters. Cool, right?

### Convert Feet to Meters With Convert

Now, here’s where things get even cooler. There’s an Excel function called CONVERT that is perfect for unit conversion. This function allows you to convert a whole range of units, including distance, volume, time, energy, and area. So, of course, you can also use it to convert feet to meters!

The syntax for the CONVERT function is: **CONVERT(number, from_unit, to_unit)**.

To add this function to your spreadsheet, follow these steps:

- Select cell C6.
- Press the fx button to open the Insert Function window.
- Select All from the Or select a category drop-down menu.
- Select the CONVERT function and click OK.

In the window that appears, you need to specify the number you want to convert from feet to meters. In this case, since you entered ’10’ in cell C5, you should press the Number cell reference button and select cell C5. In the From_unit field, enter “ft”, and in the To_unit box, enter “m”. Finally, click the OK button to add the function to cell C6. Now, cell C6 will show the value of 3.048 meters, which is equivalent to 10 feet.

If you don’t want to include any cell references in the function, you can do that too! Simply replace the function’s cell reference with the foot value you want to convert. For example, you can select a cell and enter ‘=CONVERT(10, “ft”, “m”)’ in the fx bar. This will convert 10 feet to meters.

What if you want to convert values from a different sheet in the same Excel file? Easy-peasy! Just click on the sheet tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet window to switch to that sheet. Then, enter the feet value in the corresponding cell. After that, return to the original sheet, select the cell where you want the conversion result to appear (let’s say cell C7), and type ‘=CONVERT(sheet2!B3, “ft”, “m”)’ in the fx bar. Hit Enter, and voila! Cell C7 will now show the converted value of cell B3 in Sheet2, which is 4.572 meters.

And there you have it! You now know how to convert feet to meters in Excel using different methods. Have fun experimenting with different values and units in your spreadsheets!

### Creating a Conversion Spreadsheet

So, here’s what you can do: create a handy spreadsheet in Excel to convert feet to meters. Start by opening a new Excel spreadsheet. In cell B2, type in ‘Feet’ as the label for that column. And in cell C2, put ‘Meters’ as the heading for the column where we’ll use the conversion function.

Now, let’s enter all the different values in feet that we want to convert to meters in column B. To use the CONVERT function, click on cell C3 and go to the function bar. Here’s what you need to enter: ‘=CONVERT(B3, “ft”, “m”)’. This will convert the value in cell B3 to meters. But don’t worry, you can easily copy this function to the rest of the cells below it. Just click on the bottom corner of cell C3 and drag it all the way down to the cells in column C where you want to apply the function. Before you know it, your conversion table will look something like this:

To complete the table, let’s add some formatting. First, select all the cells in the table by clicking and dragging the cursor over them. Next, right-click to open the context menu and choose Format Cells. Click on the option for borders and choose a line outline. To apply the outline to both the table’s outer edges and the inner gridlines, click on the Outline and Inside preset buttons. Finally, click OK to apply the formatting and see the changes in the table below.

Hey there! I’ve got a neat trick for you to round numbers down in the Meters column. It’s super easy, let me show you how. First, select the cells you want to work with. Now, let’s open the Format Cells window again. To do that, right-click and choose “Format Cells.”

Once the Format Cells window is open, click on the “Number” tab. You’ll see a bunch of options, but we want to focus on rounding down. So, select the “Number” option.

Now, here’s the cool part. In the “Decimal places” text box, simply enter the number ‘2’. This tells the program to round the values down to two decimal places. Nice, right?

Before we finish up, make sure to click on the “OK” button. This will apply the rounding to the selected cells.

And just like that, you’ve successfully rounded down the values in the Meters column! How easy was that? Give it a try and see the results for yourself.

Hey, check it out! I’ve created a nifty spreadsheet that can convert feet to meters for you. It’s pretty cool, right? And the best part is, you can easily add more feet values to the table whenever you need to. So convenient!
