    Put one entry field...
    Say... MB in the middle.
    pug GB on the left and KB on the right.

    into the MB field you write the actual MB value.

    the GB field contains a formula i.e. "MB divided by 1024"
    the KB field contains a formula i.e. "MB times 1024"

    Yeah I saw that. This question was so basic, I'm surprised he didn't just ask the google.
