Any and all feedback is welcomed, this is certainly a work-in-progress. It’s also open source: https://github.com/greenham/volume2weight

Planned features include allowing for conversion of multiple ingredients, importing from various formats (csv, hRecipe), and user recipe creation/storage/publishing, maybe a mobile app.

]]>I found that Numbers.app doesn’t like the formula in column E (it doesn’t support the “Array” stuff). If you replace the column E formula with the one shown below and use tsp/tbsp instead of t/T (the lookup is case-insensitive), it will work. (The clear button and autocomplete do not work, however.)

Show column E, place this in E7, and copy/drag E7 into the rest of the E cells:

=B7*VLOOKUP(D7,$P$4:$AD$278,IF(C7=””,2,MATCH(C7,$P$1:$AD$1,0)),FALSE)

The numbers adaptation of v.2 can be found at:

This will work on the iPad version of Numbers, too, but you have to type an exact match for the ingredient without the help of autocomplete.

OpenOffice on OSX doesn’t like the IFERROR() function, but it does handle the array formula in column E. (I didn’t test the autocomplete.)

Microsoft is now making Office Online available for free now at https://www.office.com/start/default.aspx – The spreadsheet and autocomplete work on OSX/Chrome, but it the “Clear” button isn’t supported.

]]>Thank you for your reply.

Yes, those measures would be good together with the imperial teaspoon (tsp) and the imperial tablespoon (tbsp).

It’s a really good resource; I’ve (slightly) amended it and used it in the classroom to calculate cost prices for recipes. The ‘scale’ button is a really useful idea.

Imperial gallon = 4,546.09 mL

Quart = 1,136.5225 mL

Pints = 568.26125 mL

Fluid ounce = 28.4130625 mL

Are these sufficient?

]]>I am trying to access the file on OSX. Anyone experiencing any troubles trying to run the file on Excel for Mac?

It takes me to VB and trys to debug some of the code.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tim

]]>Any hope of incorporating imperial measures?

I’m using this for a cookery course for the Department of Education of Ireland. We mostly use imperial.

I’ll try and edit it myself if I can get some spare time!

Regards and thanks
