Hello there smart folks! I am building a base for small film productions, and the industry has some odd practices I have to work around. One of those is tracking scenes on scripts in page length in fractions - specifically 8ths.

For my personal tracking I have a column that just holds the size in the total number of 8ths (so instead of showing 1/8 page it is 1, 1 and 3/8 pages is 11) which I can then total into total number of 8ths.

I now need to convert that back into pages in fraction form to display on one of my reports. So say I have 10 scenes over 5 3/8 pages (so my total is 43). How do I create that 5 3/8 to display?

I hope this makes sense!

With some work, this could probably be reduced to one field/formula. But for expediency's sake, try this:

Whole Numbers formula:

ROUNDDOWN({Number of 8ths}/8, 0)

Remainders formula:

Fractions formula:

Remainders formula:

{Number of 8ths}-({Whole Numbers}*8)

IF({Whole Numbers}=0,

CONCATENATE(Remainders &"/8"),

IF(Remainders>0,

CONCATENATE({Whole Numbers} & " " & Remainders &"/8"),

{Whole Numbers}

)

)

Here is another option ...

```
CONCATENATE(
ROUNDDOWN({Eigths}/8, 0),
IF(
MOD({Eigths}, 8),
" " & MOD({Eigths}, 😎 & "/8"
)
)
```
