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 ∫aL√0mic (IT9CLU), HP Prime 50g 41CX 71b 42s 12C 15C  DM42 WP34s :: Prime Soft.

RE: Truncate decimal part of angle (DEG)
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.

RE: Truncate decimal part of angle (DEG)
This should work with any angle:
→HMS((IP(HMS→(3°12′22.12345″)*3600)/3600))
