Unit conversion can be tricky, especially when dealing with some scientific units such as velocity, or energy. This Excel template was built to make conversions simple and easy to understand. One of the biggest advantages of using an Excel tool for unit conversion is that you can also embed it in other Excel models, and enhance their capabilities. For example, you can embed this unit conversion tool into a real estate appraisal tool, where the users can interact with the unit conversion for heat, or area calculations.
To use this template, begin by selecting the conversion category from the light blue dropdown (underneath the "You need to convert" label). Once you make a selection, the two white list box inputs will update with the corresponding options. Now, simply select the units you want to convert from on the left, and the unit you want to convert to on the right list. Finally, enter the value you would like to convert on the left box (before the "To" label), and you will see the outcome to the right.
Note that the worksheets are locked to highlight the input cells. If you'd like to edit the template, right-click the worksheet name on bottom-left, and select Unprotect Sheet.

How to Turn Excel Templates into Web Applications
You can turn this or any Excel file into a web application with SpreadsheetWeb. Delivering it as a web application helps protect your data and business logic. Your users can still access parts of your file, enter data and see the calculation results. But they won't be able to see the actual formulas nor modify them. Delivering your Excel file as a web application will allow many users accessing it at the same time while protecting their data. They cannot see each others data. Their data is fully protected.
