Truncate decimal part of angle (DEG)
hi,
what's the command to truncate the decimal part of an angle (DEG format).
I mean: I've 3°12'22".12345 and I want 3°12'22" without the .12345
Using IP() I get 3°00'00", with truncate() I get 3°12'22.12345" ...

thank you,
Salvo

For that specific example, 3°12′22.12345″, this works:

LEFT(STRING(3°12′22.12345″),7) --> "3°12′22"

You can probably figure out a more general approach.

This should work with any angle:

→HMS((IP(HMS→(3°12′22.12345″)*3600)/3600))
