Position formatting spreadsheet code

I made a spreadsheet which will take a digital postion and translate it into a degrees/minutes/decimal minutes position.

The pure decimal position is what you keep for a back up from a plotter but if you need to see what that position actually is this is a useful function.

Anyone think this might be useful?

OK here it is. I'm sure Simon will post some more information, but it's a work in progress and you use it at your own risk!
