Hi,I don't know about your skills in XML coding, but here is a couple of my very useful macros: %((@1,degrees) s5 abs s0 int sp1 l0 l1 - 60 * s2 d int - 60 * sp3 l5 0 >= if{ 'N ' } els{ 'S ' })%!s!%(l0 int)%!2d!.%(l2 int)%!02d!.%(l3 near)%!02d!%((@1,degrees) s5 abs s0 int sp1 l0 l1 - 60 * s2 d int - 60 * sp3 l5 0 >= if{ 'E' } els{ 'W' })%!s!%(l0 int)%!3d!.%(l2 int)%!02d!.%(l3 near)%!02d!and the strings:@FLatitude(A:Plane Latitude)Will print Xdg.mn.sc where X is N or S, dg are degrees , mn are minutes and sc are seconds. @FLongitude(A:Plane Longitude)Will print Xdgr.mn.sc where X is E or W, dgr are degrees , mn are minutes and sc are seconds. If you know how to work with macros it should be a simple task to adapt this code to your own needs.Hope this helpsTomPS: Also would be a good thing to follow Steve's link :-)
