This is a function of the spheroid and grid system that is used for the area in question. Each grid system has its own conversion method to and from DMS although the procedures are generally the same for all conversions between DMS and Grid.

Dear Anuj,


first you have to set your configure geographic defaults window to fix your default directions and your datum and ellipsoid and Grid coordinate system and seconds format, I presume you know how to do it,if not,contact me and I'll explain it to you in details, then you have to enter in terrain data menu and open the coordinates inverse window,it'll allow you to convert between DMS and Northing and Easting,always enter lat first then long after, but from UTM to DMS don't forget to define the UTM zone first.
