Number and Fraction Format
We currently use a considerable number of sheets that need numbers to read as fractions. (Construction/Exhibit Industry for dimensions) Unfortunately, if you type out a number as a fraction it cannot be used in formula. Excel can translate easily between decimal and fractional display with cell formatting.
Will there be a function to allow this in the near future? Possibly a column property that forces entries to be numbers, but in different different formats?
