We have table with data as shown in the screen capture below:

Is there way we can use 'field calculator' to populate the values in Degrees and Minutes? I came across following article however this cannot be used with 10.3:

31243 - Convert Decimal Degree values to Degree Minute Seconds values using the Field Calculator

Other way would be to use following tool:

ArcGIS Help 10.1

However this will require creating new feature class and then performing further actions to get the data in required format and in required table (original table).

Anyways who knows how to accomplish this using filed calculator?

Right click the field heading and select "calculate geometry". You should be able to specify x/y coordinates in decimal degrees.

...or degrees decimal minutes, or degrees minutes seconds, as you prefer.
