good day to all,

is it possible when a user enter "13.5" , then we convert it into "13 1/2" ?

If you code a function that does it.

thanks for reply Eric Pascarello ,

in function , do we replace the value .5 to 1/2 or we have special function to insert the special character "1/2" ?

No, there are no special functions. This is something you'll have to come up with an alogrithm for on your own.
