    Change of ruler from mm to inches

    Hello. The question has obviously been asked and answered many times. However all I can see is a reference to one questioner who thanks another for the result????



    My question.

    I am using Access in the Uk. It displays measurement in mm. I wish to use inches. Is there a way to change the ruler to inches please?

    My reason is that I am doing internet courses which give measurements in inches. In the practice exams for MOS, measurement are in inches.

    Can anyone help please?

    Thank you

    Thank you so much. All done. Very happy bunny!

    I'm doing this course due to lock-down. I'll never be in the league of most of the forum participants. But, I do have to say I have new lease of life. I hope be up to MOS standard sometime this year. I'm doing the mock MOS in the required times, and exceeding the 70%. Theory only, not practical. I will never take the exam as I am 70+, and will never get work. Learning is great.

    Regards

    Ross
